View Full Version : Trouble with booting

12-30-2004, 05:01 PM

I am trying to run knoppix 3.7 from an image copied to /dev/hdb1/knoppix.

In that folder, I have knoppix (the 700mb loopfile), and also knoppix.iso.

Now, booting using

knoppix bootfrom=/dev/hdb1/knoppix/*.iso

works just fine.


knoppix26 bootfrom=/dev/hdb1/knoppix/*.iso

does not work (it says it can't mount /dev/hdb1).

I also tried

knoppix26 bootfrom=/dev/hdb1/

but that doesn't work either. Anybody got any clues?

Might kernel 2.6 be ordering your drives/controllers differently? Do you have sata and ide controllers perhaps? Maybe you need to use /dev/hdf1 for kernel 2.6? Just a guess. Also are you booting from the cd, I presume so?

Well, later on it CAN load my profile from /dev/hdb1. No sata controllers, no additional IDE controllers. Yes, I am booting from cd, and try to use the image so it boots faster.

I used google, and it said 2.4 uses bootfrom differently than 2.6, but I can't get any method to work with kernel 2.6.
