Unhappy Dynebolic showing only command prompt


Hi all,

I am trying to install Dynebolic 2.5.2 on my system.I copied the dyne/ folder into
root of my partition(ie /) and updated grub as follows:

title Dyne
root (hd0,0)
kernel /dyne/2618ckld.krn root=/dev/ram0 rw load_ramdisk=1 max_loop=64 vga=788
initrd /dyne/initrd.gz


But on rebooting into dyne ,I get a command prompt .A part of what i saw is given below:


root:[!] you can safely reboot now or wait to enter a maintenance shell.


VOLATILE MODE : : opening a shell in ramdisk.
you are entering a maintenance sector whatever that means

you are root and your password is luther




boot_multi_user_mode:69ermission denied:/etc/zshrc
/lib/dyne/zsh/common:35:cant find terminal definition for xterm color
dyne:bolic volatile shell environment
this shell is in ramdisk
this is the moment before mounting /usr system

you are floating in limbo

available commands


(and a set of commands are given here)


happy hacking
[d:b] / #



Please help this newbie....
