everything seemed to go ok, so i tested the persistence by downloading and installing xchat via mydsl. installed it, copied it to my /mnt/hda3/home/dsl file and rebooted.
on restart the xchat icon is gone aswell as the /home/dsl file in hda3?
could you let me know if you can see any glaring errors pls
ps hda1=image 256MB hda2=swap 128MB hda3=rest of hd ~2.8GBscratch that, i haven't lost the home/dsl file but the installed apps are not persistent...:pApplications do not remain installed in a frugal or liveCD setup, although any configuration files created in /home/dsl by the apps will be backed up and restored. You'll need to put the mydsl package in the root of hda3 so it can be reinstalled the next time you start up.Hello and thanks for this wiki. I follow and got a "Missing operating system" at reboot.
After the installation I edit my menu.lst and my device.map. Did I forgot something. Thanks.
EDIT : all works now. I reinstall grub with a good device.map + all *stage* file from another grub installation. Then I re-install my grub and ajust my menu.listI did the following to get rid of a "GRUB Hard Disk Error". I need to boot a system that has the CF as the Secondary drive (/dev/hdc). On the DSL system, the CF/PCMCIA slot is /dev/hde.
If you right-click and do a Frugal Grub Install to /dev/hde. (If you take this flash and boot it in the target, you get the error in the title "GRUB Hard Disk Error" at boot up.)
Remount the CF eg on /mnt/hde1
Edit the file /mnt/hde1/boot/grub/device.map so that has one line (you could probably put others, but I didn't try):
grub-install --root-directory=/mnt/hde1 /dev/hde
now re-edit the device.map file:
unmount, etc. etc.
In my case (YMMV) the CF boots in the target system.
I know almost nothing about grub, so this discovery was just luck. I don't know why it works, or under what other situations it works. If there's a grub expert out there who would like to expose my total ignorance and show a better way, I'd like to hear about it.Next Page...
