Yep that was it.
The device /dev/nvram should have the numbers 10 144 for the vmlinux
Thus during the install phase after it sets the boot-device drop down to
with <command>-<F2> and rm the /mnt/dev/nvram device and replace it. To
it type the following command.
mknod /mnt/dev/nvram c 10 144
Also make sure that you have the modules.tgz file that corisponds to the
I simple extracted it into /lib/modules. I then got a new director
this directory now contains the proper modules for the kernal.
After instalation and reboot the following items are now modified.
Once all of these are updated you can run linux properly on a StarMax
3000 series computer.
