Dsl on Acer Aspire One


Hello everybody
I need some help with installing Dsl on my Acer Aspire One.
I downloaded all the necessary and then I did the boot from the usb pen drive.
Then it shows up a message like that:
"Could not find kernel image: linux
boot: "
I checked that the file syslinux.cfg exists on the usb pen drive so that is not the problem.
So am I supposed to check that the paths to my kernel and initrd are correct?
Could someone tell me how do I do that cause I have no idea
Thank you

Welcome to LQ Camipol89!

Mmmmmm.....

It does sound like there's no syslinux.cfg

Or as you said, paths are bad...

Older versions, those in dsl(4.4.10?)
you must give absolute path to kernel initrd

I don't have a dsl syslinux.cfg near me

Can you copy/paste the syslinux.cfg here?

Maybe your using old syslinux?

Give full path to kernel/initrd
as so, assuming kernel/initrd are in /

Code:
LABEL dsl
KERNEL /linux24
APPEND ramdisk_size=100000 init=/etc/init lang=us apm=power-off vga=791 initrd=/minirt24.gz nomce noapic qemu quiet BOOT_IMAGE=knoppix frugal
if kernel/initrd are in "syslinux" folder

Code:
KERNEL /syslinux/linux24
initrd=/syslinux/minirt24.gz
try that
