where slack most affectionate users have wonderfully convinced me in trying this that seems a great distro, i finally decided to install slack.
there i go, with my brand burned 10.1 slack installation cd's, after having read all the great tutorials out there (such as this
one), i believe i pretty much know enough to start trying out the install myself.
i fire up the cd and i got as far as the first dialogs, i just can't get the kernel to recognize my SATA drives. i get only /dev/hda which is the cd-rom. nothing else.
i've searched around all this forum and found many questions/answers all of which refer to patched kernels that v10 didn't have, but i'm using v10.1 and as far as i understood it the sata.i kernel image should do. it doesn't.
this is the base arch of my machine:
ASUS K8N-E Deluxe
2 Maxtor 6Y120M0 (120 GB SATA drives) on third and fourth master
one last thing: i successfully did install on this machine mandrake 10.1, Fedora Core 3, SuSE 9.2, gnoppix, knoppix and vidalinux.
this has already proved me to be one of the greatest linux communities, i hope that someone that encountered a similar problem recently can point me out in a right direction...
thank you very much, really,
