luegner i don t know how i must thanks you.
I have installed slackware with no problems

People who are having troubles installeng slackware becaue of there sata raid stuff.
Just download the sata slackware cd iso
I also have it on an FTP now. (Much faster and I am getting tired of running seed for torrent!

go here for SATA cd (Thanks Rick again for the bandwidth!):

ftp.readmore.biz

(log in as anonymous ... and of course use a FTP client such as gftp or (WINDOWS): WS-FTP or CuteFTP -> this way if you get disconnected or there is a problem you can RESUME it with one of those clients.. can't resume with browser...and you will have wasted alot of bandwidth...!)

(You can also download a bootdisk (Floppy image) on that yahoo site above in quotes, which is great if you have limited 56k connection or don't feel like downloading 600+MByte CD-R image! - It does exactly the same thing as the CD but you will have to fumble with a floppy install disk instead of the CD - but it's there if you need it.)

Bonecrusher: I'm trying to ftp into ftp.readmore.biz as anonymous and it's not letting me log in. I use Filezilla and I'm using ftp and trying port 21 and port 80 and both cannot connect. It does work in the browser though.

I just tried this second using ws-ftp (my personal fav under m$) and it works fine. (and I just now tried filezilla too-works fine... ) ??
Make sure it is set to 'anonymous' and give some sort of email addr with @ sign in it as password - this is the way of any anon ftp site.)

*Telling me the browser lets you in just tells me that is is working. Something is screwy on your end. A web browser always HAS to use anonymous as its logon method.


Check your settings again is all I can tell ya. Works here.

My bad. Looks like there's a bug in Filezilla 2.2.9 but it works fine in 2.2.8d.

Exclamation Troubles with Dell Server

hi pals, i've been recently downloaded and burned the bonecrusher's cd that its roling on the internet, but i got a problem on the setup of slackware 10

se the slackcd recognices perfectly the SATA disk (bonecrusher's cd of course) the mess is when i finish i mean i dont know what kind of kernel install or if i need to do a write on the MBR or what i tried today the next configurastions:

writed in MBR --> causes conflicts cause the kernel got a kernel panic no VFS found!

writed in floppy --> booted (i just made a boot disk of the kernel provided in the slack cd of sata) but when iu tried to login sends errors about librariesand dont permit shutdowning etc

writeb in /boot --> pulls down a long nines (ex: 999999999...)

i have read the documentation on the cd of bonecrushers but i cant boot it for re-compile my own kernel.

any idea???

Regards.

Bonecrusher, props to you! I downloaded the iso, and it installed flawlessly. Excellent work.

Shubb: Thanks BTW


RFernandez:
Are you still having problems? Or did you figure out what you did wrong?
Let me know.... Sorry I didn't notice your message sooner! You should be copying the kernel
that was on the CD I believe. And yes, the preferred method (Even if you have XP or anything else installed,) is to write to MBR (Before hand you need to set up LILO for any other installs on that boot-up drive (IE: XP, 98, Mandrake, Red-Hat, OS/2 blah blah blah).

Once you have LILO setup correctly, write it to the MBR, and let LILO boot your computer to a menu.
Then you can pick what you want to boot (windows or linux), and remember that whatever you have listed first in the lilo.conf, will be the one LILO default boots if you don't press a key or whatever.
BTW you can also use 'Grub' (I do!) instead of LILO, but when you first install I would recommend
LILO simply because that is what the install defaults to under Slackware at least. (At least thats what I recall.. been awhile since I did a fresh install.)

Well let me know what happens!

Tried -current?

Sathia:

I just downloaded and installed the slackware -current disks from www.slackware.no and they worked fine on my machine. It's kernel 2.4.27, but if you don't mind running a 2.4 kernel the stock kernel works well. I checked the config file they have posted and they have Promise SATA support compiled in, so it should work on your machine.

Personally, I couldn't hang with the stock kernel because it wouldn't show all my memory (tops out at under 900 meg unless you compile the kernel to see more) and didn't seem to support my sound card.

You shouldn't have to download both disks, either. You should be able to download the first one, start the installation and then then just put in the second CD you already have to finish the installation. Or you could do a barebones install, then go back and just add all your other software using the disks you have. But I'm making an assumption here, so YMMV. Downloading both -current CDs may be easier if you've got the bandwidth.

If you do go with -current, you'll have to type in the name of the kernel that first time you see boot: . It doesn't come up if you check the list by pressing the F2 or F3 keys. I guess they haven't updated the installer yet. But if you just type in sata.i and hit return it works fine.

Good luck and don't pull your hair out.

Before you throw anything away I wil gladly take it

Anyway, did the boot recognize your sata drives? (Use Shift-PgUp/PgDn to look at boot log after it prompts you for the install.1 disk) .. They should come up as /dev/sdX devices.
Well, before I go any further let me know what you see.... it looks like you mention /dev/sda above, but I want to clarify this.

and did you run 'cfdisk /dev/sda' ?
(You need to specify the device or it defaults to an HD device....)
see this link for more info on this.

get back to me if this doesn't help.

Joe,

So they finally made a sata.i kernel with the 'experimental' ISO's on that site? I am not understanding. Which ISO are you talking about? I see some DVD iso's and a 'current' ISO under experimental.. but doesn't mention SATA at all...
Please let me know which is which.. thanks!

yes, it seems so, becaus it seems to see my device hard disk in /dev/sda and /dev/sdb

-bc

and yes, i specified /dev/sdb or /dev/sda

i'm sure they were my hd in fact i saw a 10G partition and one (broken) of 390G

thanks

joe f.
are you talking about thise one?

sata.i This is a version of bare.i with support for SATA
controllers made by Promise, Silicon Image, SiS,
ServerWorks / Apple K2, VIA, and Vitesse.

i tried it with a "current" of some days ago, did they do any change?
