I have recently come across an old Toshiba Libretto 50CT. It is about the size of a VHS tape, and has very minimal features: 16MB RAM, 75MHz Pentium MMX, PCMCIA slot, and a tiny color display. I understand it came with a dock and a PCMCIA floppy drive(!), but I do not have these.
Windows 95 booted up without any problems. However without any sort of pointer, or even a PS/2 port, I had no use for a GUI. I decided to make it into a linux terminal.
I am trying to run Slackware 10.2 with the standard 2.4 kernel (bare.i) on it. Since I do not have the external floppy drive, I pulled the HD out and threw it in a thinkpad. Finished the install, put the drive back in the Toshiba, and - kernel panic. It seems to be having a problem running fsck. Here is the relevant output:
/dev/hda1 has gone 43926 days without being checked, check forced.
Unable to handle kernel paging request at virtual address 61d707f0
*pde = 00000000
Warning... fsck.ext2 for device /dev/hda1 exited with signal 11.
<1>Unable to handle kernel paging request at virtual address 61d707f0
and at last
Code: 39 36 75 05 5b 5e c3 89 f0 31 c9 ba 03 00 00 00 5e
<0>Kernel panic: Aiee, killing interrupt handler!
In interrupt handler - not syncing
I threw the drive back in my thinkpad and it booted fine.
Can anyone help?
