Slacko 5.3.3 on USB drive doesn't read hard disk
Having decided that I would rather boot my laptop off a memory stick instead of a CD rom, I installed Puppy on a thumb drive using the Puppy Linux setup menu.
However, when I boot off the thumb drive, Puppy doesn't read the .SFS file on the hard drive. When given the option of saving your settings, the only media offered is the thumb drive itself.
Is this by design or is there an inherent problem with booting off thumb drives?
Another thing to distinguish:
.SFS in not .2fs
And least :
should only load things from the USB if USB is second HDD,
loads a mixed match of HDD and USB : .SFS if found from HDD and .2FS from USB (probably if no .2fs found on HDD) .
The code for searching for the Puppy Files could need some modifications IMHO.
Also, if you are booting Puppy from a USB flash drive or usb hard drive, you have to mount the physical hard drive to be able to read the contents of it.
You can use the drive icons on the desktop or the pmount utility to mount a drive.
Just be sure to unmount the drive after you are through.
