slackware 10 - i only have 2 issues


ok, i have another box and i installed slackware 10 as well as compiling a custom 2.6.7 kernel. problem 1:

bash-2.05b# mount /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom/
mount: /dev/cdrom is not a block device

what option did i leave out in my kernel configuration?

problem 2:

im sure i compiled framebuffer support correctly, yet i dont get the tux logo and framebuffer

which options are essential for framebuffer?

other than that all works well ;p

thanks, michael

First of all, check your dmesg to see whether the device is
being picked up... if it is, ensure that /dev/cdrom (which
is only a symlink) points at the actual device, e.g. /dev/hdc

This can be either an issue of your kernel-compile,
or of your lilo.conf ...

And again, dmesg (and a look at the most recent logfiles)
may prove very helpful ;)



Cheers,
Tink

sorted out problem one (duh), in lilo.conf i commented out the ¨hdc=ide-scsi¨

problem 2, the only thing that seems off is this:

vesafb: probe of vesafb0 failed with error -6

just checked under /dev/ and i dont see any devices like vesafb0 or fb0, do u think there´s a problem there?

mike :/

If vesafb is off, have you got a hardware specific driver (e.g.
radeon) enabled?

Are you passing a vga= option at boot time through LILO?
