User Mode Linux on Slackware 10.1
I am trying to setup User Mode Linux on Slackware 10.1. I have successfully compiled a UML kernel (220.127.116.11) and created a root FS. Then i booted into UML successfully and partitioned the root FS. Then i formatted the root FS (ext3). After that I ran setup and selected the TARGET as /dev/ubdb1 (ext3 formatted root FS). I chose not to format the partition as i had already done. But as soon as i selected the option of not formatting the partition, the process got stuck. I halted UML and again booted into it, now when i try to run setup it says that there is no partition of type 'Linux' and that i need to create a partition of type 'Linux'. When i exit setup it gives me the following error.
rm: unable to stat `/var/log/setup/tmp/SeTfdisk': Input/output error
Moreover, when i change to /var/log/setup/tmp and do an ls -l, it gives me the same error for SeTfdisk i.e. Input/output error.
I have tried creating different file for root fs using dd. But i ended up getting the same error again.
Whats the problem and how can i fix it?
