Okay, I need help.
As I said, I had FC1 installed until I changed a monitor setting and couldnt get into the desktop as the monitor would go into standby/flashing mode. So I have tried to install Slackware 7.
I went into the setup and used cfdisk to first delete and then create partitions on both disks, finally writing to them and using Quick format.
I then installed Slackware on Full mode onto the linux partition and used the kernal in the final options from the CDROM.
Setup completes and I reboot, but STILL it then boots up to that menu asking you to pick a kernal, and the only option is FC1's kernal from the previous installation, despite formatting.
It selects this kernal, as it is the only one, and after some lines of code it stops at:
- mkrootdev : label / not found
- Mounting root filesystem
- mount: error 2 mounting ext3
- pivotroot: pivot_root (/sysroot, /sysroot/initrd) failed : 2
- umount /initrd/proc failed : 2
- Freeing unused kernel memory: 120k freed
- Kernel panic: No init found. Try passing init= option to kernel
I'm quite new to all this and really dont know what is going on, so any help is greatly appreciated. I thought formatting would have wiped everything.. and where is the kernal picked from the CDROM list of kernals during install??
What can i do?!?
