    back to original topic of this thread: munjoy=nojoy for me, at least

    Checksum is good. It just won't load though it boots. I have watched carefully at least a dozen times and I get no pause/prompt for input. It boots, there is a grey screen that goes by very quickly where I catch loading vmlinuz blah blah, then onto the the black screen with little penquin, says "munjoy linux install CD...blah blah knoppix...init version 2.8 knoppix booting? blah blah.....then loading"

    and there it sits. I have kept it up as much as a half hour but there is no progress. Tried in both my cd and burner drives. Not sure what else is left to try until I get my spare box back together for a go in that.

    I see that the Munjoy site now has it's own forum section so folks may want to post questions and give feedback there.

    Re: New Debian based Distro

    I'm typing this on it right now. So far I'm mostly happy with it as an actual item, and very happy with it as far as being an initial release. Considering the complexities of something like this, what problems I've had seem pretty minor.

    The good: Great alsa setup, I like the little touches to try to make it more desktop friendly.

    The bad: I tried dist-upgrading to sid and afterward it wouldn't boot anymore.

    But, all in all, I think they've got a good thing on their hands.

    Joe, have you tried Kanotix? A little closer to sid than even Knoppix. I have upgraded more than I ever tried with knoppix and haven't broken it yet though I am very cautious.

    My munjoy=nojoy continues, to date no response to my problem. I did put my spare box back together yesterday and booted munjoy on that. Happily it did boot and LOADED and I got to the installer. Then it failed, repeatedly saying no disk was chosen to partition when I repeatedly chose hdb2.

    No idea why it won't load on my newer machine. Thought the error on the spare was due to the ancient and much abused 5 or 6 yo HD in there. But afterwards knoppix installed fine on same disk. Will have to just put away munjoy for now and hope there isn't some sort of hopeless incompatibility with my amd herd and the 2.6 kernel.
