Can not run setup as root?

Can not run setup as root?

Post by Jingsong » Wed, 15 Feb 1995 04:43:04


It is strange that I can not run setup or pkgtool as root, in contrast, I can

get dialog window if I add /sbin to a user's path.

I can run them a while ago (when I setup system and do some adjustment).

The reason I can think is that my linux partition is after 1024 cylinder,

and my BIOS only see below 1024.
