Always getting a limited console after booting DSL at a VAIO from HDD (frugal)
 
No matter how I've teaked the kernel line at menu.lst for DSL it either boots up with a very limited console-like screen or doesn't boot at all.

I'm posting below the relevant entries for DSL:

Code:

# 7) Linux bootable partition config begins
  title Damn Small Linux frugal in sda2 dir dsl
  rootnoverify (hd0,1)
  ide1=0x180,0x386 
  kernel /dsl/linux24 fromhd=dev/sda2 home=dsl restore=dsl root=dsl ro lang=us frugal sata
  initrd /dsl/minirt24.gz
  makeactive
  boot
# Linux bootable partition config ends

Last time I tried it I, progressively, deleted from the kernel line there parts of the following cheatcodes until I finished with none of them:

"fromhd=dev/sda2 home=dsl restore=dsl root=dsl".

I guess it's not happennig because of too many parameters I'm giving the kernel of DSL. Probably is because of something I'm missing to deliver...

Any ideas? Thanks in advance!

PS. What that "ro" at the kernel line entry means?

Try by replacing sda by hda.
