as far I understand there is two (2) different installation on hard disk (whatever CF or real hard disk) :
Is this correct ?
If so, how to check which installation was made on an already installed DSL ?
Posted by mikshaw on Dec. 22 2008,13:49The easiest way I can think of to check (assuming GUI is easier for you than console) is to open the control panel and click the "mounts" tab.
If it shows /dev/cloop on /KNOPPIX then you have a frugal installation. If you have a /ramdisk directory then you probably have a frugal installation. If you don't have either, you definitely have a tradional installation.

So it seems I definitely have a traditional installation as shown hereafter :
/dev/hdb1 on / type ext2 (rw,errors=remount-ro)
/proc on /proc type proc (rw)
/dev/pts on /dev/pts type devpts (rw)
/proc/bus/usb on /proc/bus/usb type usbdevfs (rw,devmode=0666)
Posted by mikshaw on Dec. 22 2008,20:50Yes, I'd say probably so. In frugal it seems that "/dev/hdb1 on /" would be "/dev/root on /"
