Booting from internal memory card

January 26, 2011 — BarryK
My laptop has a slot for an SD card, although the BIOS does not allow to boot from it. It shows up as /dev/mmcblk*.

In the previous blog post I mentioned a bug fix to allow Puppy to boot from and/or save the session to an internal memory card. This was supposed to work before, but I found some bugs.

I have now modified the Universal Installer to install Puppy to an internal memory card that shows up as /dev/mmcblk*.


What model

"Woof can build from packages of another distro, but uses some x86 precompiled PET packages. They would have to be recompiled, as kirk did for FatDog64.
