    difference in starting procedure for kernel 2.4 and 2.6

    Please help.

    How can I start step by step?

    Knoppix 5.1 dont't starts.

    By testing I found that the release with Kernel 2.6 didn't start and 2.4 works well.

    So I downloaded Knippix 3.6 Version for testing from one CD.
    There you can select between starting with kernel 2.4 and 2.6.

    I use the option: 2 vga=normal

    When I use the Version 2.6
    I get the message:
    loading linux ...........
    loading minirt.gz...... (minirt26.gz)
    Ready.

    The cursor is flashing the message stays on the screen (with the option: 2 vga=normal)
    and nothing more - the keyboard buffer is getting an overflow if I use the keyboart (beeping).

    I have tried many different cheat codes.
    I wonder whats with the screen, because the isolinux for starting makes screen outputs.

    Even in the expert-mode there is no detailed output after the message.

    Does anyone now the folloow up of the start process. Is the first what happens - changing
    the screen output function (form text to graphic???) that there is not one information
    about the next successfull step?

    Is there any possibillity to test the start-procedure without screen - beeps for every step -
    or output per serial output???

    Thanks in advance.

    knoppix 2 vga=normal nodma

    nodma - und fast alles ausschalten ist nicht erfolgtreich

    Hallo Fergue,

    to Fergue:
    thank you for your help - please excuse the in German written replay - it was late
    and Iwas very tiered I think.

    to all:
    the problem is not still in question, because the laptop is defect. With my new
    desktop I use knoppix 5.3.1.
    Please excuse the in German written replay - it was late and Iwas very tiered I think.
    --- Because the problem is never relevant to me, I will not translate all the text. - - -

    erst mal danke für den Hilfsversuch. Melde mich so spät, weil ich vorher nicht dazu
    gekommen bin, mich um das Thema zu kümmern.

    Leider hilft auch das nicht. Hatte am Donnerstag in einem gentoo Usertreffe
    den Hinweis bekommen, verschiedene cheatcodes zu testen - so ist bereits die
    folgende Kombination getestet.

    vga=normal noapic nolapic acpi=off apm=off noagp noapm nodma nomce nofirewire nopcmcia noscsi noswap nousb nosmp noaudio pci=biosirq

    Mein Problem ist u.a., dass ich kein DSL habe und mir so nicht einmal die DVD
    mit Source-Code herunterladen kann.

    Auch habe ich ja schon mit fb1024x768 und anderen die Darstellung
    beeinflussenden Optionen gearbeitet.

    Die einzige möglichkeit die ich sehen würde, wäre ein theoretisches Debuggen
    (real geht nicht, da der Bildschirm ja nichts anzeigt oder Knoppix nicht startet)
    der ersten Vorgänge beim und nach dem Start, in der Hoffnung den Unterschied
    zu finden. Dann könnte man ja eventuell Häppchenweise auf die neue Release
    umstellen. Dazu braucht man jedoch abgesehen von dem Aufwand an Zeit noch
    einen Zweiten Rechner, von dem aus man immer wieder eine geänderte Zwischen-
    version erzeugen könnte.

    Nun ja zu dem Thema mache ich mal ein neues Thread auf.

    Nochmals Danke!

    Gruß
