MEPIS doesnt run, can somebody help?
I bought a well known Linux magazine today and with it i got a free distro of MEPIS 6.0.
According to the magazine you boot from cd and then MEPIS is supposed to run from disc, when i boot from cd the screen goes to a selection screen asking what i want to do i.e run normal mode,minimal etc, i select normal and the screen goes blank I left it for an hour but nothing changed, I then restarted my pc and tried running the other alternatives but I recieve this message:
Uncompressing Linux...OK,booting the kernal.
Looking for MEPIS Linux...
Found MEPIS Linux at /dev/hdc
Mounting MEPIS filesystem...mount:Mounting /dev/loop0 on/linux failed: Invalid Argument.
Can't startup filesystem.
If anybody could help me I would be greatful as I really want to try this distro out.
thanks for your time.
