Me too... Exact same problem.. I've tried TWO different slackware dists.
One 6 months old and one two days old... I've also tried old and new
kernels. I think the init process keeps dying. (It mounts root fs and
then when the init process tries to run is when these messages start.)
or something the init process LAUNCHES dies, i dunno.. didn't know where
to go from here...
Help, Installed linux 1.2.8, installation went just fine. When I
reboot, just after the partition check, I get a looping error
"child 'process id' died with code ff00". The process id starts at 0
and increments with every loop. Can somebody help with this.
