Swift Linux (AntiX fork?, Debian based)


I managed to boot Swift now using a simpler boot code in grub4dos

But me being a non/priv user I could not look at any pics or play music due to I was not allowed to use the NTFS-g3? thing to mount the HDD most likely because it was owned by the DEMO Swift script booting it up on the HDD so I most likely have to move it to a USB memory to allow mounting the HDD. I guess me ahve to do some Sudo or something and I am not used to do such. I fail to remember how one do it.

Here is the code if you what to try a new iso. the 0,2 is due to the OEM made three partitions one for Acer and one for Win7 recovery.


here is link to iso to download. http://www.swiftlinux.org

he says

Username/Password

* When you boot up with the live CD, you may be asked to enter your username and password. Enter demo for both.

* When you run Swift Linux with the live CD, you will be asked for the root/administrative password. Enter root.

* If you install Swift Linux, you will be asked to provide a username, a password for that username, and a root/administrative password.


I have no relation to him but I love to test if linux boot in frugal install.

I thought that maybe the code was not right and that could explain why it failed to boot_
I had this code before but had a gut feeling it should boot using a simple code

Quote:
title swift
root (hd0,2)
kernel /swift/vmlinuz vga=791 fromhd=/dev/sda3 fromiso=/swift/swiftlinux-0_0_3.iso en drvr=intel xres=1024x768
initrd /swift/initrd.gz
So I changed it to something less complicated

root (hd0,2)
kernel /swift/vmlinuz vga=791 en nosmp acpi=off
initrd /swift/initrd.gz
And I am writing from within Swift now. So That was easy unless one are so computer challenged as I am.

Edit but then it failed to boot using that one three times in a row so now I am back in swift using the iso boot thing. Obviously I don't know what I am doing but if nothing else boot on your NTFS hdd try Swift using that iso code and place the iso in the subdir swift

It worked one time and then never more. Could the RAM memory have kept how to do it and given that priority over the less complicated code I tested three thimes wit the easy one and failed at same place each time. So this is more complicated than waht I thought it to be.

AntiX does not boot at all on NTFS and that is how it is supposed to be if I get the Dev himself.
