I am quite a Linux newbie...I have installed Slackware 11 successfully on my desktop computer but my attempt to do so on my laptop didn't go as well as i expected!
The problem came out of nowhere after 3 or 4 successful logins in Linux. It begins booting and it stops at
cs: IO probe 0xc00-0xcff:excluding 0xcf8-0xcff
cs: IO probe 0x820-0x8ff:clean
cs: IO probe 0x800-0x80f:_
What could be the problem?
An answer for a similar problem i found in this forum was this:
"I then decided to modify the /etc/pcmcia/config.opts as follows:
from include port 0x100-0x4ff, port 0x800-0x8ff,port 0xc00-0xcff to include port 0x100-0x4ff,port 0xc00-0xcff (credit to Mark Holbrook from here http://holbrooks.org/linux/delli8k/
I then added hdparm -d1X66 -c3 -m16 /dev/hda to my rc.local file using pico"
I don't know if this applies to my case, i will give it a try...are memory ranges (IF this is what the numbers are) the same for me?
I have a dual booting system (Windows XP and Linux) with LILO on the root partition of my Linux installation.
My laptop is a TOSHIBA Satellite A100-906 with:
1 GB ram
NVIDIA Geforce Go 7600
100 GB sata hdd
WIFI card, card reader, Bluetooth
I don't know if any of these causes a problem or if knowing these specifications would be helpful for someone to help me out but i did post them anyway.
So, any ideas?
