Nemesis and Porteus on same partition

Post#1 by Shoshi » 14 Apr 2016, 05:12

I am interested in running both Porteus and Nemesis on the same partition in different folders. The structure of the folders is shown in the photo below.

I have Porteus running with KDE, Mate, XFCE, and LXQT using the Syslinux menu and cheatcodes. However, no matter what I try I cannot get Nemesis to boot. It mainly stalls at trying to locate the SGN file. I have used multiple sgnfile=and from= commands to try and get it to boot. The porteus.cfg from the Slackware folder structure is being used. I even appended the porteus.cfg from the Nemesis folder (APPEND /nemesis/boot/syslinux/porteus.cfg) to use the actual Nemesis boot structure to see if that would work and still run into sgn issues.

If anyone has help that would be appreciated! Thanks!

Like I have said. I have used various iterations of both the from= and sgnfile= commands. I realize my post was on the long side so you may have just skimmed over it. But I did try to be clear... So if you have more information that would be lovely...

I have many porteus installations side by side.

Would you prefer syslinux of grub2? Mine come grub2.

@Shoshi
Try this:

Code: Select all

LABEL NEMESIS
MENU LABEL Nemesis
KERNEL /nemesis/boot/syslinux/vmlinuz
APPEND initrd=/nemesis/boot/syslinux/initrd.xz from=nemesis 
TEXT HELP
    Run Nemesis
ENDTEXT

It worked! Thanks so much! Now I just need to figure out why Octopi does not load in Nemesis, Does anyone know?

Did you tried guest mode?

Try to start octopi in command line mode and provide the output.
