Angry Mindi crashes on boot.b file not found


Helle there,

I am running Slackware 9.1 with Kernel 2.4.29 that I recompiled and last night after installing mindi, when I tried to run it I got a fatal error reporting that mindi cannot find the boot.b file. What in the world is this? Is this some sort of backup file of the boot sector in Slackware? I have never seen this file before.

Has anyone run into this error and resolved it? I would like feedback before I go to Hugo for help. Thanks in advance.

Talking

I resolved my problem:

From the directory /boot, made a copy of the latest boot.xxxx file to boot.b. Now Mindi runs to completion and creates all the disks and the boot cd. I still need to
test booting from the cd but I need to do some changes since I used a cdrw and my primary cdrom is not the cdrw. This however, has nothing to do with Mindi. I thought
I share this so it can help someone else.

Now moving on to the next challenge: making Mondo work!

Ok, I forgot to mention in my previous posts that I am using the mindi ver. 0.87 and mondo ver 1.67. These are
the recommended versions for Slackware 9.1 in the site
www.nerdworks.org. While I managed to get mindi to work, mondo is giving me this error:
---FATALERROR---MABI - unable to semget.

I suspect that this is related to semaphores in my newly
compiled kernel, 2.4.29. Can anyone point me in the right direction in the kernel compiling options where I can
activate semaphores? Thanks in advance.

P.S. By the way, when installing the especially tailored packages for Slack (from nerdworks.org), install from /tmp in you want things to work.
