Help needed on Slackware 3.0 on 1.7GB hdisk!

Post by sureene » Mon, 01 Jul 1996 04:00:00



Hi,

I am facing certain problems in booting from a 1.7GB hdisk. Initially I used the Disk
Manager 7.0x and tried it in DOS and Linux Partition. It hang saying Kernel Panic.

After that I tried with out DManager and just used a 400M DOS and 500M Linux. still
have similar problem.

Can any one help. Is there any FAQ on this!

Thanks

1. DPT help needed -- Slackware 3.0 ELF, RedHat 1.2

I am trying to install Linux on the following:

Hardware:  DPT 2122A (EISA)
           BIOS: v05E.0
           smartrom: v002.D1

Distribution:  Slackware 3.0 ELF from InfoMagic
               (The Developers Resource Kit)

------------------------------------------------------------
Trying to boot using the boot disk 'scsi' from the CD-ROM:

  HBA at 0xADDRESS didn't react on INQUIRY.  Sorry.

No disk is found.

I tried the tsx-11.mit.edu pub/linux/ALPHA/scsi/EATA but it
is Slackware 2.3 and won't read my 3.0 root disk.
------------------------------------------------------------
Decided to try RedHat.  Tried several kernels.  None would
see any scsi devices.  Got the red hat kernel from
  tsx-11.mit.edu pub/linux/ALPHA/scsi/EATA
It would not read ramdisk2:

It reads the first one, followed by:

VFS: mounted root (ext2 filesystem)
  kernel_version needed, but can't be found
RHL: Insert ramdisk 2 floppy and press ENTER

<I insert ramdisk 2 and press ENTER>

couldn't open /dev/ram2 at /bin/init line 60, <> line1

I tried the ram disks that came with my Red Hat 2.1 distribution
and from
  ftp://ftp.caldera.com/pub/mirrors/redhat/current/i386/images/.

Any suggestions?  I have ordered a new BIOS for my DPT.
Please?
