Guess what happens when you do a thing like bump?

Nobody looks at it usually since they think it is being answered.

I'd suspect some data issue either bad download or install or such.

It will have been 3 days since posting in a few hours, oh please do forgive me for my abuse of the forum system sir!

Perchance do you (or any around hear) have a more in-debth idea of what might be wrong? and if there is simply a common i can use to correct the error?

EDIT: I can cntl+alt into a tty... but don't know the log in credentials.

Not abuse.

Might be that the post is better suited for some other place. Unfortunately distro specific posts tend to get lost. I only see them when I use a special search.

Tell you what. Make a new post on this in general forums and post a link to this to ask a mod to delete this one. The general forum would give you a better chance.

Thanks, but i think i'm gonna hold off on puppy all together and see if i can't get lubuntu 10.04 running on this machine.

Mods can close this if they like, i'll create a new post in the main forum if needed.

Init must run as PID 1 can mean another process is using PID 1 .

Possible : you booted with initrd.gz but Puppy Linux does not need initrd.gz (anymore) in PUPMODE=2 Full install to HDD .

The initrd.gz has code to switch to console mode which would /bin/sh make PID 1 .

The /sbin/init launches /bin/busybox init if no fsckme file detected .

Since i am working on /sbin/init

ADVANCED pup-5xx /sbin/init

This is the only possibility i could think of.

Thanks for your effort but I've now got lubuntu 10.04 up and running on it... mostly with out flaw (and only sucking 60mb of ram at desktop :) ) now i just need to get it to detect the 3com network card.

I want to make it into a home dns server so kind of need that XP
