i have just installed slack 10.2 on one of my machines...
the insatllation seemed fine!
reebooted and lilo came up fine...
logged in as root fine.
this is where the problems began...
(i have4 removed everything form the prompt apart from folder names to save typing)
tried to add myself an account...
-bash: adduser: command not found
tried Cding to /usr/bin to activate it directly form there (i think its there)
# cd /usr
usr # ls
hey! theres nothing there!!!
has the partition mounted?
/dev/hda1 on / type ext3 (rw)
proc on /proc type proc (rw)
sysfs on /sys type sysfs (rw)
devpts on /dev/pts type devpts (rw,grid=5,mode=620)
# mount /dev/hda2 /usr
modprobe: FATAL: could not load /lib/modules/188.8.131.52-12mdk/modules.dep: No such file or directory
mount: unknown filesystem type 'ext3'
now that is a bit ritch as all my partitions are ext3 including "/" wich works fine!
my partitions on hda are as this...
hda1 primary bootable / ~3G (ext3)
hda2 primary /usr ~5G (ext3)
hda3 primary SWAP 256M
hda5 logical /var ~1G (ext3)
hda6 logical /tmp ~1G (ext3)
hda7 logical /home ~9G (ext3)
hdc 16X DVD-Rom
hdd 4X4X24 CD-RW
sda - sdc usb drives various (including zip 100)
processor, 800MHz intel celeron
Graphics: on board 1M dedicated memory then shares system memory
mouse generic scroll wheel type (imps2)
kbd generic UK map
if anyone has any ideas as to what is wrong please post away
