I tried following someone's instructions for running MkLinux from an HFS
partition (/sda4, for reference):
1) Mach Kernel is in Extensions, where it belongs
2) MkLinux Booter is in Extensions, where is belongs
2) mach_servers folder is at root level of HFS volume
3) lilo.conf points to the HFS partition(/sda4) instead of to the /
partition (/sda12) as it did for the standard configuration
4) boostrap.conf reads as follow:
-w default_pager /dev/boot_device/mach_servers/default_pager
-k -S 524288000 startup /dev/boot_device/mach_servers/vmlinux -c
[the second line has no line break in it, though it may be soft-wrapped
in you news viewer]
During the boot process everything goes fine thru the hardware setup and
then it prints:
(bootstrap): loading /dev/boot_device/mach_servers/default_pager
(bootstrap): loading /dev/boot_device/mach_servers/vmlinux
and then it hangs indefinitely.
I've tried this with the kernel/server pair that shipped with DR3, and
with GENERIC 05 and GENERIC 07. Same result every time.
If I point lilo.conf back to /sda12 with the DR3 kernel/server then
everything works fine, so I know all the files are good. I copied the
kernel/server to the HFS volume from Mac OS using LinuxDisks.
Any hints or suggestions? Thanks!
