Red face Wary & Racy failed to boot


As a newbie, I just burned from iso, Wary and Racy, unfortunately my both dvd's failed to boot. Wary showed error message " Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS : unable to mount root fs on unknown block (8,9) ". And Racy said the same thing plus "[1.9134621] Pid:1 comm: swapper Not tainted 3.0.66 #1 plus 9 additional similar lines. Don't know what to do

Clean the lens on the dvd drive with some thing like this.

Sounds like a hardware error. Like a dirty lens. Be sure and check md5sum of your puppy linux downloads before burning the dvd also and burn the dvd's at 4x speed with the program of your choice.

Edit: If the computer can boot from usb flash drive. Even better.

Wary and Racy are a little long in the tooth. What are your computer specs? CPU and RAM specifically as well as Lecacy or EFI boot?

Essentially, they're among some of the last 'official' Pups (built by the 'Puppymaster', Barry K. himself), shortly before the switch to the current Woof-CE build system. They were built with the older T2 build-system. This explains something about how T2 works, assembling a Linux distro from the binary packages of another distribution.....

http://barryk.org/t2/

5.5 was the final stage of Racy (and T2's) mainstream evolution.

I run Racy 5.5 myself (on a 15-yr old, P4-based Dell Inspiron 1100), along with many far newer Pups.....and in some respects, it's much sweeter to use than the current offerings. Lighter; more responsive, too.

http://puppylinux.org/main/New%20Racy%20Puppy.htm

Mainstream Puppy switched to the Community Edition of Woof (Woof-CE), although BK has continued to evolve T2 further in his current project series - 'Quirky'. He handed over development of mainstream Pup to the community around 3 years ago, and devotes his 'retirement' to the development of 'off-the'wall' ideas in Quirky.

Hence the name..!

---------------------------------------

I agree with Roky; it does sound hardware-related. How are you actually attempting to run Pup? As a LiveCD (with saving back to the disc).....or are you intending to use the LiveCD to install Pup to something else?

And to echo Gordie, yes; specs would be nice. Specs are GOOD..! (Amongst other things, they give us something to get our teeth into...


Mike.
