Basically I do not want to do a proper HDinstall, I just want to copy the entire contents of the live CD onto a spare partition and boot from there. I know this was possible in Knoppix using the "frmhd=/dev/hd*" cheat code. I was wondering if there is something similar for Fluxbuntu.
I've made initial attempts at this but only get as far as a limited shell.
I've got a grub boot floppy with Fluxbuntu as one of the menu options. The contents of the live CD are on /dev/hdb5 ( my 2nd hard drive)
Menu.lst is like this
kernel /casper/vmlinuz ramdisk_size=1048576 root=/dev/hdb5 rw quiet splash--
I get to "uncompressing Linux kernel OK"
but then get error messages like "/dev/hdb5 on /root failed no such device."
/root/dev on /dev/.static failed
Target filesystem does not have /sbin/init.
I then get dropped in an "ash" shell with limited functionality.
Obviously the kernel "cheat codes" need adjusting. Any ideas ?
I'm not sure this has been done before as I have got no response from the Fluxbuntu community forums.
