Re: [puredyne] Puredyne Digest, Vol 80, Issue 4

Thanks for posting this, I had just run into that problem recently and
was trying to find the answer!

By the way, is there any plan to a newer puredyne based on a recent
version of Ubuntu? (just curious)

Thanks!

Bruno

Re: [puredyne] Puredyne Digest, Vol 80, Issue 4

I believe there is still work progressing on Puredyne 10.  Its coming along slowly because everyone is busy with other non Puredyne stuff.  Any help is welcome though!  I need to get in there myself and help work out some bugs.  Last I knew there was a Beta version people can download and use.

Re: [puredyne] Puredyne Digest, Vol 80, Issue 4

puredyne team,
I have used puredyne as my primary distro for over a year now, mainly to
use supercollider. I appreciate your work to make the distro!

I inadvertently upgraded ffmpeg and related low level codecs, causing
some karmic programs to stop working, and after fiddling with failed
efforts to backpedal, I decided to do a complete reinstall, by creating
a bootable USB .

I downloaded the latest carrot and coriander iso file (in my case the
amd64 version) and built the USB as described on the puredyne.org site,
using the make-live-device.sh script. The USB would not boot, saying
"file not found" when grub loaded. This turned out to be because the
grub script on the puredyne partition, /boot/grub/grub.cfg, calls for
loading vmlinuz1 and initrd1.img but in the puredyne partition /live
directory the iso package has vmlinuz (without 1 at the end) and
initrd.img (no 1) in them. Changing the script by removing the 1's
enabled the USB to boot. So far so good, except that this is not how you
want puredyne to behave for newcomers, and maybe my fix was the wrong
thing to do, since vmlinuz and mlinuz1 are presumably not the same, and
I don't know why the discrepancy is there.

Can anyone explain what the difference is between vmlinuz and vmlinuz1,
and whether this makes a difference in my installation, and why the
standard public website download doesn't work, or what I did wrong in
the process?

Second, how can I get the beta version of puredyne 10? Like others who
have posted here, I'm also looking to get past the problems of karmic
not being supported any longer.

Thanks!
-Dave

Re: [puredyne] Puredyne Digest, Vol 80, Issue 4

ah yes.  a friend of mine ran into the same problem recently.  i ran into it myself a few years back.  glad you found the solution!  i assumed the script had been fixed, but apparently it isn't included with the ISO.  if the dev team is listening, is that something that got fixed and never rebuilt?  or is that something still to be done?  i imagine it is trivial and i can give it a shot, but a new ISO still needs to be built.

the difference between the two is simply a filename.  i imagine at one point there was two kernels and the script was pointing to the second one (as well as initrd).  now there is only one and the script should point to the only one that is there, namely vmlinuz. 

here's a link to the gazpacho ISOs that have been built

http://download.goto10.org/puredyne/gazpacho/

you can get there by following the normal download link and then just going up a directory and back down to gazpacho.  you'll want to get the latest one from July 2011.
