mount failed for selinuxfs on /selinux


Hi
I have a lenova Z61m (IBM ThinkPad) running Ubuntu 8.10
I thought I would give Dreamer a try.
First I tried to inststall it on a 4 gig thumb drive. Screwed it up somehow (easy for me) so i tried it on my laptop using the whole disk option to see what it is like. No errors or warnings on installation but on the reboot i got the
Quote:

on startup and then hung up with "Waiting for /dev to be fully populated..."

Note: Unbuntu 8.10 is such a snap to install I can added it to the "dreamer" if I like it, or reinstall it on the whole drive. ( I took my "Vista" off a few months ago, and have never missed it.}

Thanks for any help

I think you gotta cut us some slack here and state which Dreamlinux version it is that you're testing/using.

The latest releases are
DL3.3 stable
and
DL3.5RC4

The rc4 release is meant to have a wider audience and volunteers to test it and report back on bugs. Of course, the DL devs and testers are hard at work on this, to lead to the Final version of 3.5 in about a month's time.

So therefore, it is work-in-progress and covered more in depth over at dreamlinuxforums.org
There is too much information to include here.

You have to be registered to be able to go to here
Obligatory Testing Rules - PLEASE read before posting
This is if you're on 3.5rc4

If you're on DL3.3, there is an install script ready-made for you and when the new Dreamlinux installation scripts --- yes, there are more than one to cater to a very wide range of users --- are ready, they will be announced when released.

For DL3.3 pendrive go here >
[Mini HowTo] USB DreamPen Install Reloaded

BTW, it seems 'hung' when 'waiting for /dev to be fully populated' because of several routines run from a highly-compressed state - because you put it in a pendrive with usb-install option. It gets better with subsequent usage from the same computer.

P.S. Your worries seem to be concentrated on the 4GB pendrive, could you make it clearer for google searchers and users of this forum by creating a better Subject line? Thanks, impeteperry

Thanks for your reply.

First: My down load was DL3.5-RC4_211008.iso
I realize it is in development.

When I saw you were added to the LQ Question list of Distros I wanted to take a look and I liked what I saw.

As I said, my first thought was to put it on a 4G pendrive. I don't know what I did wrong, but it didn't work, so I installed it on my hard drive using the WHOLE drive. This is when I got the messages in my post.

I don't know what I did, but I get the same "selinux... " message, but it now goes on and loads OK.

I then installed my Ubuntu 8.10 and my Grub loads either distro. so I can work with my Ubuntu and play with my Dreamer.

My Ubuntu recognized my wireless router directly, my Dreamer did not.
As I don't have windows on the computer and the Ubuntu doesn't ask, I don't know how to install the wireless "Install New Driver".

I am able to connect wired however. so I can continue to explore your most interesting distro.

Now I am looking for a way to turn off the "touch pad mouse" for us "track point mouse" users.

I am writing some programs using the Trolltech Qt-4... toolkit. Will let you know how I make out

Thanks again,

Hi again impeteperry

Interesting. Would you like to try give us an lspci -k ?
Wanna see what wireless hardware you have & if loaded.

I'm glad you really want to try out Dreamlinux.
Good to know you're Qt'ing

I don't have trackpoint to try with so for this it might be useful for you to ask directly at dreamlinuxforums.org
You'll probably get an answer from there pretty quick, too.

and you're welcome

A command in terminal, listing your pci-hardware. If we do know, which wireless-module is built in, we can give you better help.
btw, your "mount failed"-message means, that DL-kernel does support selinux but is not installed by default (it is kind of a safety-feature, to be installed via Lenny-repos); so do not worry about it, that's okay, more information here.
