Well, i just hpe someone reads this old thread. I too tried the crazy method of installation as what was done earlier in this thread. i removed my old laptops hard drive, installed Suse10.0 onto it and dumped it back onto my laptop. Grub loaded beautifully with the options to boot Linux or XP ( i have XP on hda1 and Linux on hda3 and hda5 for swap ). however when i start Suse it quits halfway through the bootup with the errors
Waiting for device /dev/hda3 to appear:...resume device /dev/hda3 not found (ignoring)
Waiting for device /dev/hda5 to appear:...not found -- exiting to /bin/sh
i have no clue to proceed. the console it dumps me into hardly has any functional commands ( cant even do ls
) and most of the directories dont exist.
having read this complete thread ( i read only half of it when i started
) i was wondering can the problem be with Suse itself? should i instead go ahead an install FC4 on my laptop? Xyem, you did get it to function after all dint u so could it be the prob with the distro ??
thanx for any help u guys acn give.
