    Toshiba Satellite 2435 Hangs After "Ok Booting the kern

    Hi all, just wandered if there is anything else i can do to get this Toshiba Satellite 2435-S255 Working.

    Here is the output.

    "boot: failsafe
    Loading vmlinuz............
    Loading miniroot.gz.....
    Ready.
    Uncompressing Linux... Ok, booting the kernel.

    "
    The system is hung after this point. This same CD (3.2 beta 5-20-2003) has Hard Drive installed to another PC so I'm pretty sure its not a corrupted CD problem.

    Any pointers would be great.

    Ok found a thread about this problem. This last posting seems to indicate Compaq and other "newer" laptops may have similar problems.

    More digging. I found the holy grail of my problems. Unfortunately, It seems I will have to wait for 2.4.22; hopefully that will have APIC patch needed for my laptop. It would really be nice to get the Toshiba Utils included in Knoppix.
