I'm trying to install slackware 9.0 but isn't working and I'm a complete to slack. The installation completes, but when I restart all I get is a blank screen when I try to boot Slack. I've also tried booting the system from the installation CD but I just get the regular install. After my 100th install or so I switched over to the 4th console to check the message from the install and saw "mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/hda2, or too many mounted file systems." Any ideas on how to fix this?
well, I suppose it is hard to tell if it is booting behind the blank screen, but at the lilo prompt type:
lilo: (label (dfault linux)) vga=normal and see what that does, if that works tell me and I will give you a permanent fix.
explination: slack automatically installs witha 1024x768 frambuffer consol, but a lot of configs do not support it, even my gf4ti4600 on a viap4b400 p4-2.2ghz does not do it, yet my 1ghz gf2go dell laptop does it fine.
