Some Weirdass Error!


When i partition my hda in 2 seperate partitions

a 32mb /boot type linux (primary)
a 2000mb / type linux ( logical)

And a hdb

a 500mb /swap type linux swap (primary)
a 1100mb /home type linux ( logical)

(Im new to this, so don't know if my partitioning make any sense, but bare with me im trying)

I start formatting the swap first.. takes around 5 minutes or so. Then the 2000mb partition started formatting and it took like 1 minute, so i think there is something wrong here.

When i start installing i get LOADS and LOADS of cannot write to inode, and freeing block, and error on ide(0)1 something.

Does this mean the harddisk is f*cked, or is it something i did wrong?

The weird thing is the first time i was installing slackware it just installed, only at the end my disk was full () so i hat to narrow my install down, and then problems started.

Please help me out!

As I've figured you have allready killed everything was installed in your drives, right?

So, try to swap the disks. Replace the primary with the secondary and vice versa to see if the format of the 2Gb partiotion takes only 2 mins, because this looks very strange. Maybe its a bad sector (or there are a few good sectrors...)

Let me know!

I switched harddisks but when i start to format the hda root drive it just takes AGES to format, and this cant be right


I now get (while installing packages) "Operation not permitted"

Installation takes a while. Be prepaired to watch some tv or something because the install can take a while if you do a thorough format of the partition (which I recomend).

OK, now I'm conviced that it's time to change your hard drives... I remember I took the same reply once (Operation not permitted) and it was hardware error. It may let you install Linux after some tries, but it will be less stable than an MS Operating System... (is this possible )

Try to get rid the first disk (the one you tried at the first time) and try again. Remember to shoot the f******g piece! And don't worry, it took me about 3 weeks to deploy a working - so far - samba server!

Cheerz!

ok

let me get my sledgehammer :P *BANG BANG!* lol there goes my 2.1gb Western Digital from '96 hahahaha

It is that i wanted to test slackware first and all, im building a gameserver

dual p3 1266mhz
Intel SAI2 mobo
3x 512 corsair cas2 ecc
2x 40gb wd's 7200rpm at RAID 0+1
with some MASSIVE cooling on it

that all nicely fitted in a 4u Rackcase

But before that, i want slackware to run! i heard many many people about slackware, that it is the fastest and (if installed correctly) one of the most stable linux distro's out there. Escecially for game-hosting.
