LiveDVD will not run


Hi
when I try to boot from Sabayon 3.3 DVD after the POST there is a longer delay than normal and across the bottom of the screen is...

ISOLINUX 3.11 Debian-2006-03-16 Copyright (C) 1994-2005 H.Peter ANVIN
Loading.....

The strange thing about that is Sabayon is Gentoo not Debian.

After initializing kernel and going to verbose mode the following is the result :-

[ 41.621060] ibm_acpi: ec object not found
[ 50.513092] specify port
[ 50.517605] powernow-k8:BIOS error - no PSB or ACPI _PSS objects

>>Booting (initramfs)..switch_root: Bad console '/dev/console'
[ 53.283262] Kernel panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill init!
[ 53.283352] _

NB I have removed the 3rd line by enabling "coolnquiet" in the BIOS

The download has the correct checksum and i've burnt at the slowest speed...
I have written to DVD-R, DVD-RW and DVD RAM each one at least twice and the effect is the same ..they will not work on my other computer either . Does anyone have any ideas as to what is the problem
I have many other live Distros and they all work fine

thanks.

I'm pretty sure Saboyan is Debian based although I could be wrong

Thanks for your reply Ace,
apparently the ISOLINUX line is correct...and the reason for the failure was that the
dvd drive (that is only 3mths old) will not read its own discs...but it is only on the 3.3 version of this distro , all other live dvd's seem to work OK.
I put in a the old drive and and everything is fine.

It's a Gentoo binary distro.

I thought that gentoo wasn't debian ...

So why does the line:-

ISOLINUX 3.11 Debian-2006-03-16 Copyright (C) 1994-2005 H.Peter ANVIN

appear before the cd starts loading??

That's the bootloader. It *is* Debian. http://syslinux.zytor.com/iso.php
