Hi all, I'm new to linux and need some help. I did do a search but came up empty, and apologize if it has been already discussed. Please guide me in the right direction.
I am trying to install wary 5.1.2 on my spare 600e Thinkpad. I choose this distro as from searches it works well with my old equipment and the pci wireless card I would like to use. As stated in the title, after the splash screen of puppy I am greeting to the option of booting into normal, basic, and advanced. I have chosen each one and all give the same error - puppy_wary_5.1.2.sfs not found. Dropping out to initial-ramdisk console...
Is this booting from a CD, or from the hard drive?
If it is from the hard drive, did you do a full or a frugal install?
If you are booting with Grub, can you post your /boot/grub/menu.lst?
It could just be a simple thing of adding a kernel parameter to get the sfs file found.
You might try adding a parameter to the kernel line when you boot. You do this by typing "puppy" to stop the boot process long enough so you can enter that parameter. Try "puppy acpi=noacpi" or "puppy pci=nopci". There are others and pressing the F1 key should show you available boot parameters.
