View Full Version : loadlin question

12-19-2002, 07:33 AM
Hi there. 1st of all, thank you for knoppix.

I enjoy it so :D

My question is this:

is it possible to load knoppix with loadlin ?
if so, could you show me the correct way to
pass parameters to loadlin ? i tried this .bat file

loadlin vmlinuz vga=normal root=/dev/ram load_ramdisk=1 init=/etc/init initrd=miniroot.gz ramdisk_size=100000

i obviously copied the vmlinuz and miniroot.gz from the boot.img and
added the big +700 MB knoppix file and boot.cat to c:\linux.

Helas, i get some error message about init ???

If anyone can help me with this, thanks in advance !

Have you tried to use it with the CD in the drive? You say you copied the KNOPPIX file to your HDD, so I'm wondering, does it work with the CD in the drive ?

Now why does that matter ? Ofcourse i ran it from the cd
to begin with, how else am i gonna fall in love with it and
decide i want it permanently on my HD ?

you sure can

just use C:\KNOPPIX as the directory name, and put all your files there.

I am trying to find a way to boot the kern2.6 KNOPPIX-big-file from DOS... anyone????

HAH! I found the answer!!! :)

dos commandline is: 8)

linld image=linux initrd=something cl=@params.txt

and the file params.txt contains the rest of the boot parameters,

YYEEEYYY :D kernel 2.6 is working from DOS...

yippieehhh :D
