Adding Puppy Linux & memtest

Asked by Titanet on 2011-04-22

Hello,

How to add an entry for Puppy (in frugal mode) ? Here is my old menu.lst from the grub legacy version i used before.

title Puppy Linux 4.30 frugal
rootnoverify (hd0,3)
kernel /puppy430/vmlinuz pmedia=idehd psubdir=puppy430
initrd /puppy430/initrd.gz

Also, how to add the previous entry for memtest ?

Oh, I'm not a grub2 developer…

Generally, the os-prober of grub2 should find all the other operating systems. If this doesn't work for puppy, you can add the entry to the file /etc/grub.d/40_custom - in your case, this could be something like this (I didn't try it):

menuentry 'Puppy Linux 4.30 frugal' {
        set root='(hd0,4)'
        linux /puppy430/vmlinuz pmedia=idehd psubdir=puppy430
        initrd /puppy430/initrd.gz
}

Don't forget to run update-grub2.

memtest should be found automatically (from the memtest script).

Thanks, your answer helped me to solve my problem. In fact, i use Burg now, not Grub2. The memtest script was missing in /etc/burg.d directory, so i copied it from the /etc/grub.d folder.
