Help with DreamLinux
 
Hi all
Im a windows lifer trying out linux for the first time, im trying to install dreamlinux im my system. I created an 8g partition from my 80g hdd to setup a dul boot system. When i try to get to the dreamlinux setup it runs some tests then says /mnt/main/Home does not exist
/mnt/main/Root does not exist
chroot no such file
pivot root no such file


not sure whats going on, can someone translate?

How did you try to access the setup?

unklekoolaid 08-29-2006 10:22 PM

it comes on a livecd so it runs the setup from the cd from what all i can tell, according to its website you can install it to the hdd from there.

It sounds like its trying to mount folder taht arent there but thing is i dont understand why those directories arent on the cd. I ran cfdisk and create a linux boot partition
I would assume a setup cd would create it's own directories, the website claims it should just shoot straight to the setup then you can install from there

http://wolphination.com/linux/2006/0...dreamlinux-20/ says it should run off the cd

if you are a first time linux user i suggest using ubuntu or pclinuxos. ther are perfect for newbies. i am a newbie also. but i guess you wanna try it because it is brazilian.

you can ask dreamlinux forums. they will be more helpful to you. http://www.dreamlinux.com.br/forum/

sorry for not being more enlightening. trying my best.

Ok well im not sure why but after i downloaded teh XGL expermental *.iso and burned it, its started up fine, wierd. Oh well, awesome distro it can actually run off the cd.

Hi guys just so as you know...Dreamlinux has its own section now
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/dreamlinux-82/

and richs-lxh and some others from Dreamlinux are only to willing to help would be Dreamlinux users.

Please don't take this the wrong way ...but I always think it is polite to go to the distro's own forum to see what it is made of.


I hope you feel like dropping in from time to time to see how Dreamlinux is doing.

Have a good Christmas guys and hope to see you later
