Slackware 13.1 installation huge.s stops at kernel_thread_helper
I have an old Toshiba Laptop (Mobile Pentium 3, 64MB).
I have Windows XP and Fedora Core 1 installed and working on it.
Want to replace the Fedora Core 1 with Slackware. So tried using a Slackware 13.1 DVD.
At boot prompt I gave:
Once, I also got this line, after a long wait:
I had downloaded the ISO from:
So, it does NOT appear to be 64 bit.
I tried using the same DVD on another newer laptop, again using huge.s and same options, and the install seems to progress further, i.e. I at least get the keyboard map option. So, the image on the DVD is ok.
I have looked at the thread:
But no luck from there.
Anything else I can try to debug the problem further ?
Download the slackware-12.2-mini-install.iso and see if it boots. If it does you can try replacing the cd with your slackware 13.1 disk and progress with installation (this SHOULD work - but i never tried that with two different slackware versions)
OR you can try chroot install from your fedora, if you have any additional disk space available. Though it's not as easy as cdrom install...
Thanks. I will try it out.
Currently I am trying to use the Ubuntu Alternate install for low memory systems.
