help installing source mage
I have been using ubuntu for a while but dessided change of distribution. I thought that source mage 0.10 could be interesting and I have been trying to install it (first on a vmware so that I don't mess my partitions up).
After the reboot, it doesn't work :
Well thank you if you can help :)
Well I will try to be more specific with my questions,
So I created 3 partitions (used cfdisk /dev/hda )
hda1 Primary bootable Linux ext3 3999.75 Mb
hda2 Primary Linux ext3 4999.75 Mb
hda5 Logical Linux 2161.93 Mb
I want to install on hda1 and to install /home on hda2. hda5 is for the swap.
I then do :
then there is that step where I am a bit lost :
what should I do to mount / on hda1 and /home on hda2 ?(and is it the right thing to do)
I have been doing :
mount -t ext3 /dev/hda1 /mnt/root
mount -t ext3 /dev/hda2 /mnt/root/usr
I don't know if it is right (I know that /usr isn't /home but it is what they say I should do in the installer). thanks :)
You are correct that usr is not home. mount what you want as the guide is there to help you if you do decide to place usr on a separate partition.
Another possible problem for your original error is due to the fact that once booting into the system it is seeing your partitions as /dev/sda1 ... and hence when you specify
/dev/hda1 in lilo or grub it can't find what it needs to. If this is on the right track, my suggestion is to follow the instructions again and see if you get to the same spot.
If you do, go into edit mode for grub or lilo and change all references to hd to sd and see if it boots?
If it does boot, once in your can make the change permanent with nano ( i believe still the default editor)
So I typed
mount -t ext3 /dev/hda2 /home
When I installed it in the next step (http://www.beernabeer.com/screenshots/install_6.png)
there is a problem installing netkit :
Couldn't create tablet information for netkit
Is that a big deal ?
then there is that step I don't know what I should do.... : http://www.beernabeer.com/screenshots/install_7.png
From step 6, which method did you use?
As for step 7:
1. fstab will obviously need to be done as it is used when booting your system
2. hostname is up to you but like networking can be done later
3. setting the TIMEZONE will only affect the clock value and again can be done once the system is booted.
