problems with 9.7 xfce - installation


Hi,

I've tried to install 9.7 but ran into problems.

My system has a lot of partitions for different distros. I formatted /dev/sda2 as ext3 then I started to boot the Live-CD.
The boot-process ends with the concole-prompt
I start calculate --update. This needs just seconds
I start eix-sync as displayed from Calculate
I start the installation
Code:
calculate disk=/dev/sda2 --os=CLDX set-mbr=off
The install-process worked and ended with the prompt to change the root-pw.

After this a message is displayed, that I should reboot.

Before I do that I edit my /boot/grub/menu.lst from the distro, which's grub is in the mbr. I added the lines

Code:
title Calculate
hd (0,1)
kernel=/boot/vmlinuz root=/dev/sda2
The booting-process startd but ends soon with
Code:
No filesystem could mount root, tried iso96600

kernel panic - not syning: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unkown-block(8,2)
What have I done wrong??

Thanks in advance for helping advice & greetz from Germany

Good question, thanks.

All modules required for boot are included in initrd, which after installation is optimized for your hardware. Therefore, the file initrd is needed to run the system.

Copy the startup configuration from file /boot/grub/grub.conf in your Grub.

Good luck!

Well, this advice was the right, thank you, Calculate starts now ))

maybe it's a good idea to place this hint into the doc?

You are right, it is necessary to describe this moment in the documentation.
