TRIED A NUMBER OF WAYS TO GET THE ISO TO BOOT ALL FAILED with kernel panic
think it is missing that Q_ID file copied one from past quirky but still failed.
didnt try burning an iso. not going to try that.
now trying alternatives
iso above is md5sum correct but
scratch that below was looking at sha1sum not md5sum.
got this md5sum fail from ibiblio
# md5sum xerus64-8.1.5.usfs.xz
beginning to thinking BK has had too much christmas cheer:)
md5sum above is correct
cant check devx, and service pack upgrade, pets as there is no md5sums
in the history of the universe this is the puppy linux which i had most failures to install. it has taken me hours.
how did i finally succeed? not going to tell you lol
# uname -r
ha ha ha i got it and you aint
wooha! bluetooth can see bluetooth adapter and then my phone!
now to figure out how to actually use the bluetooth!
hint on successful install: none of the methods described in the install read mes lol (think inside the other box lol)
I used Quirky Universal Installer in Quirky64 8.0 to install the 8.1.5 iso to external 40 GB harddisk formatted ext3 with only one partition sdb1. chose full install to partition .
out of about 5 boots only one boot kernel panicked. the external HD wont boot itself, have to use the produced code in my grub4dos menu.lst on my netbook to boot the external HD.
have tried many other things and they all failed.
wrote 8.1.5 to dvd. failed to boot both normal and uefi
wrote 8.0 to dvd booted installed upgrade to 8.1.5 still doesnt say udated kernel. wrote it to savefolder on sdb1, rebooted, failed to see the save folder on flashdrive sdb1. failed to mount flashdrive sdb1. no mounted icon on flashdrive sdb1 on desktop.
in savefolder there is a Q_ID file. i STILL think this Q_ID FILE missing from iso installs is the root cause of all the booting issues.
plus somehow it wont read from/boot from flashdrive at all.
so after many more trying still my only 8.1.5 is on my quirky universal installer external HD install.
some time later i may try a 8.0 plus upgrade pet remastered to dvd.
PREVIOUS iso to DVD WRITES WERE IN XERUS 8
so thought i'd try to use fatdog710 with updated syslinux stuff as advised on the forum. in short pburn seems to have destroyed my dvd. nothing will write to it, blank it or even see it. various other OS tried.
