Starting Installation of Red Hat Linux 6.0

Starting Installation of Red Hat Linux 6.0

Post by Kane Anyanw » Mon, 02 Aug 1999 04:00:00

    Hi, I am installing Linux onto my 8.4 GB hard drive which contains
Win98. I downloaded all rpm's and exc and it is on my computer.....When I
reboot my PC while the Linux bootable floppy is in, everything goes fine
until the first screen that u see when installing not the welcome sign. It
said I have to press enter to install or upgrade, so I do. It checks and
performs auto-probing. At the end of it test the last thing it said was

    Ramdisk: compressed image found at block 0
    CR C error VFS: Cannot open root device 08:21
    Kernel panic: VFS unable to mount fs on 08:21

I am not sure what that means????? And then It stops and the only way I can
restart is to manually turn of the computer the old fashion way. Please help
I would appreciate it if you help me out :-) thanks please respond ASAP :-)


1. Help - Apache wont start - Red Hat Linux 6.0


when I type /etc/rc.d/init.d/httpd start

I get this error:

Starting httpd            [FAILED]

then i type /etc/rc.d/init.d/httpd status

I get this result:

httpd dead   but subsys locked

What have I neglected to do - or what is it that is stopping Apache to work?

I have a feeling there is a specific entry for it in the inet.d file - can
someone show me what a typical entry for httpd in the inet.d file looks

kind regards,
