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:
huge.s noapic acpi=off
It gives messages about loading kernel/bzimage and initrd.img etc and then when it says "Trying to unpack root file system as initramfs", then, quickly there is stack of messages like:
There is no progress after this message and installation halts.
Once, I also got this line, after a long wait:
Clocksource tsc unstable (delta = -246681047 ns)
But, then again no progress after this line.
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 ?
