Puppy Linux On Your Multipass

Hey people, this is a painless way to get Puppy Linux 4.3.1 running on your multipass.

Alright, first make a folder at the root of your drive entitled "puppy". Then, download puppy linux 4.3.1, and extract the .iso to your desktop (or somewhere). Then, copy/cut the pup-431.sfs, vmlinuz, and initrd.gz into the puppy folder on the root of your multipass. Then add this code to your menu.lst file:

title Puppy 4.3.1

find --set-root /puppy/pup-431.sfs

kernel /puppy/vmlinuz

initrd /puppy/initrd.gz

# Have fun!

# *Note* the "#" is intentionally put before the "Have fun!" in case some people are lazy and want to copy everything at once.

In case you want to run Lucid Puppy on your multipass, here are the instructions:

Make a folder at the root of your drive entitled "lupu". Then, download the Lucid Puppy .iso (should be lupu-500.iso).

After that, extract the .iso to your desktop (or somewhere). Then, copy/cut the lupu-500.sfs, vmlinuz, and initrd.gz into the lupu folder at the root of your multipass. Then, add this code to your menu.lst file:

title Lucid Puppy (Puppy Linux)

find --set-root /lupu/lupu-500.sfs

kernel /lupu/vmlinuz

initrd /lupu/initrd.gz

# Thanks for reading my post!
