fatdog64 ::SD Card not booting properly...


does this cover fatdog64 too, like they got no home.. lost puppy, got fat might be 64 years old hence the name.

anyways, I got it installed on a SD Card and it does not find the fd64.sfs base file to load it, and it gives me a root login prompt instead and I have no idea what to do with that.

anyone got usable suggestions?

some suggestions spring to mind....

check your download matches the md5sum
https://distro.ibiblio.org/fatdog/iso/

boot up with a bootcode of loglevel=7
http://distro.ibiblio.org/fatdog/web...t-options.html

investigate whether your sdcard is seen by the bios correctly as a bootable device
additionlly...is this a microsd card in an adapter sdcard reader
......thru some usb hub that has a sdcard slot?

also how did you flash it?
I use the dd command

sudo dd if=/path2file/file of=/dev/sdx (discover sdx) bs=4M && sync

or did you try a full install type?
http://distro.ibiblio.org/fatdog/web...l-install.html

reg sized SD Card I used the create fatdog42 utility in FATDOG64 on a usb stick to create it, and right now I'm back to trying slackware live on SD Card again after making adjustments to packages I added on.

it gets seen as bootable because it boots just not completely by both.
slack live I created off scripts if I dd it it works Okay, no persistence, so no extra packages like geany mpv, but that is for a slack issue.

I am just trying to get a usable SD Card Linux OS. long story short.

for fatdog add the boot option waitdev=20 on the kernel/linux line
for slackware add boot option rootdelay=20 on the linux line

FatDog64
this is in sys.conf file, that is not the proper name but I know it is a editable conf file, I put it at 10 and message said 5 still. let me go re-create it again, --- (took all day and got nowhere, let me try this again)....
slack.. got to refresh my memory on what it wasn't doing right. I added packages off slackbuilds dd it to a stick it worked, but I got some strange issue with ntfs on the 2tb external, and ,mpv I got a try to fix a lib it could not link to.

this was the line I was using for slack
Code:
sudo ./iso2usb.sh -i /home/ftp/slackware64-live-xfce-current.iso -o /dev/mmcblk0 -w 10
this is turning into work and not play...
