1  Damn Small Linux / User Feedback / Re: DSL revival? on: March 28, 2014, 08:27:02 AM
The problem with running newer browsers ,etc . is because DSL is limited to GTK1 ....app selection is therefore very limited. Newest browsers that I'm aware of are located at http://www.lamarelle.org/mo-zi-lla/mozilla.php . FF 2.0.0.20 and SeaMonkey 1.1.19. Newer browser are generally GTK2.

Mainly on a 733 Mhz/256 Mb ram P3 and an old AMD k-6 2 501 mhz/384 Mb ram and for experimentation an Athlon XP 2400+  2.0 Ghz/1 Gb ram.

@james c
As he is using a SATA HDD, the device is named "sda", even in DSL.

Thanks for letting me know that my DSL installs,which do happen to be on SATA drives, are not supposed to be booting.Now I need to break the bad news to my computers...... Smiley

Good luck to you Benny.

For whatever it's worth, here's a copy of my menu.lst that successfully boots DSL ....... and about 10 or 12 Puppy installs.

Code:
title Puppy Raring 3.8.4.2 in sda8
rootnoverify (hd0,7)
kernel /pup15/vmlinuz pfix=fsck pdev1=sda8 pmedia=atahd psubdir=pup15 nosmp acpi=force nouveau.noaccel=1
initrd /pup15/initrd.gz

title DSL-frugal-base-norestore (hda8)
root (hd0,7)
kernel /boot/linux24 root=/dev/hda8 base norestore
initrd /boot/minirt24.gz

title DSL-frugal-toram-mydsl-restore (hda8)
root (hd0,7)
kernel /boot/linux24 root=/dev/hda8 toram mydsl=hda8 restore=hda8
initrd /boot/minirt24.gz

Notice that I needed to use "hda" instead of the "sda" ,that I used with Puppy, because of DSL's 2.4.X kernel.
That basic menu entry ,with the exception of different partition numbering, works with 3 different DSL installs.
HTH.

Nothing seems to work to get any of the images to load so I can boot\load into a running OS of Damn Small Linux.
Does this OS even work?

Works fine here.

Since I'm a Puppy user  I like SeaMonkey. Smiley Are you familiar with   http://www.lamarelle.org/mo-zi-lla/mozilla.php  browser builds?
9  Damn Small Linux / Other Help Topics / Re: Live ISO on CD on: October 02, 2012, 05:07:12 AM
I have tried twice to download and burn to CD the latest release candidate but it will not boot up. Is there something I am doing wrong? I would like to h\ave a Live image on CD to play around with. I do not know much about computers other than turning them on and surfing the net and a few other things. THANK YOU in advance for your time and consideration.

The basics are checking the md5 for the download,,,,,,,  4b61c7892eefc23b71d4931bdcc3f1f1  dsl-4.11.rc2.iso    ,verifying that there was a good burn to the cd and making sure your computer is set to boot from the cd before the hard drive. Need more info though before anyone can offer much specific help.
