1. Kernel error message booting root disk
I have now run into *two* people having the *same* problem booting Linux
up on a system that may be identical to the one I had no trouble at all
getting Linux to run on. The system is an AcerPower 9000T 60 MHz Pentium
I had no trouble getting Linux to boot using the Slackware Pro 2.0 CDROM
distribution. The boot and root disks worked, and Linux started just fine.
However, both of the other two people are having trouble because their
systems choke when reading the root diskette.
One of them has indicated that he has done the following, after ftping
the boot and root images from standard sources on the net (as opposed to
using a CDROM as I did):
got a copy of "sbpcd.gz" with BINARY ON
got a copy of "color144.gz" with BINARY ON
gzip -d sbpcd.gz and color144.gz to get "sbpcd" and "color144"
used Rawrite 2.0 to xfer the image to two newly formatted disks
Tried them and got the same results, although it did detect my CD (yea!)
When it says to put the ROOT floppy in and I do, and hit enter, the Disk
Drive makes a weird read sound...hard to describe, but someone else had
the same symptom and it just comes up read error, only 1024 blocks
implemented (512) whatever that means...
I have traced this message down to the kernel module ll_rw_block.c, although
that module may not necessarily be where the malfunction is occurring.
This does not seem to be a problem with getting Linux to work on a
Pentium, nor does it seem to be a problem specific to the AcerPower 9000T
(since Linux works quite well on mine). But it does seem to be a problem
with recognizing the size of blocks on the floppy (I think), which could
indicate a problem with the boot or root images, or the sources or
options used to compile them. (I believe these were Slackware kernels,
and thus may be 1.0.9, if memory serves me correctly.)
Can anyone help the people having these problems?
