Re: UBCD not working with YUMI?

OK, let's go for the easy one first :) : the cpu stress tools. UBCD 5.1 version used the PMagic's kernel instead of the original, so to attempt to make cpu stress work with more modern CPUs. This change didn't work so well. I haven't tested cpu stress in UBCD 5.1.1, but I don't think Victor went ba...

Re: UBCD not working with YUMI?

Okay. I wanted to start over from scratch so that things could be easily-reproduced -- and so that I could just have a simple script to run when new versions of UBCD come out. There are a few things I had forgotten: (1) I *did* use the directory= arg in my pmagic config. I basically replaced the iso...

Re: UBCD not working with YUMI?

YUMI uses GRUB for multiboot, but other well-known tools use SYSLINUX for multiboot ACTUALLY, YUMI uses syslinux whenever it can and falls back to using GRUB for ISOs that it doesn't have code to deal with. In the case of UBCD, there's actually an entry for it in YUMI, but when you choose that, YUM...

Re: UBCD not working with YUMI?

Wow! Thanks so much for replying Victor! (And Ady!) I sooooo appreciate all the amazing work you've put into this over the years. After going back and looking at this, now I'm starting to doubt my sanity. I can confirm (of course) what you posted Victor about the content of pmagic & ubcd isos--that ...

Re: UBCD not working with YUMI?

Well. I got it working. Here's how: I eventually noticed that you (Victor) have the pmodules directory (containing the all important sqfs) in a different place than in a stock PM iso. Stock PM is like so: pmagic/pmagic/pmodules UBCD PM is like so: pmagic/{pmagic,pmodules} I assume that this works so...

Re: UBCD not working with YUMI?

I'm also having trouble getting UBCD to work with YUMI, but not in the same way. I can setup a boot cd of UBCD or a usb (using ubcd2usb) that works fine; however, when I use YUMI to do a single- (and then later multi-) boot usb, UBCD isn't able to load Parted Magic. Everything else works, and PM see...
