puppy linux full install boot stops at "sh-3.00#"
 
I installed Puppy Linux 4.2.1 to the hard drive in a 2gb ext3 partition. It boots with GRUB.

The boot sequence goes like this:
Unlzmaing Linux... done.
Booting the kernel.
sh-3.00#

Anyone know what this means or how to get past it?

Whats up dude?

post your menu.lst for me

repo 07-28-2009 07:57 PM

Try to type startx

gray53 07-28-2009 08:09 PM

typing startx gave me "command not found"

Linus72, how do I view menu.lst? I tried typing "sudo gedit /boot/grub/menu.lst in the boot screen and it also gave me "command not found"

Thanks.

Ok, dad found the menu.lst, but we can't get it off of the computer!

linus72 07-28-2009 08:51 PM

Ummm

use cp command

Quote:

cp -a /boot/grub/menu.lst /home/your-name/Desktop

OK, forget it. I'll just wait till the extra RAM comes in the mail and play around with it for a few days. Thanks anyway.
