install halts: "cannot create /modules/modules.cgz..."

Post by chri » Sun, 31 Dec 1899 09:00:00



I'm installing Mandrake 6.1 onto a Toshiba Tecra laptop.
Using FTP install with DHCP.
DHCP works fine (the PCMCIA is ok) and FTP reaches the Mandrake files
(located on another machine in my network).

During the first phase of the install (right after entering my domain name
and machine name) there is some FTP download activity and then the following
text error appears.
Any ideas?
===========================================
/usr/bin/runintall2: cannot create /modules/modules.cgz: read-only file
system
install exited abnormally

cardmgr[14]: + ./network: /sbin/ifconfig: not found

cardmgr[14]: exiting
done

unmounting filesystems...
 /tmp/pcmcia
 /tmp/image
 /proc
you may safely reboot your system

You've not installed the base system, or you have not mounted
the root
filesystem to /. This causes certain commands and files to not
appear, since
you can't write to /.

1. Linux "unresolved symbols in module /lib/modules/2.0.29..."

Can anyone tell me how to find the libraries which contain symbols?  How do I
make sure that they are linked properly?  I have done "make dep; make clean",
I am about to try a "make modules".  Any suggestions?

Thanks,
Tom York
