Puppy universal installer: SANITY CHECK -- partition cannot be unmounted!


I'm going to go ahead with the install. Is there any case in which I would need to mount a partition?

I'm using Puppy 4.2.1

Hey, Linus72, would you recommend DSL or Barebones Pup for a newbie? Barebones is a 57 MB iso.

Bad thing about barebones is no browser etc

browserlinux (was browserpuppy) 64mb
is best "light" puppy I've used

pupflux-421 is nice too

I got like 7 pups right now on my 2gb fat32 usb
PupPack!

uh...you already have browserpuppy don't you?

bad thing about DSL is it's Dead
and it's not made for hd install
but runs better/faster that way

Tinycore is the new DSL, same people
tinycore needs 48mb to boot

so, you could have a desktop, maybe dillo2 browser

get more ram
