Posted by SenorBurns on Nov. 23 2003,03:42I wanted to do a hdinstall but I can't even get into the terminal it boots up I hit enter at the boot: prompt
Accessing KNOPPIX CDROM at /dev/hda1...
Creating /ramdisk (dynamic size=46416k) on /dev/shm...done.
creating directories and symlinks on ramdisk...done
starting init process
INIT: version 2.78 KNOPPIX booting
Processor 0 is M II 3.5x core/bus 233mhz
And then it just freezes up one time it loaded one other line then froze I don't know if I downloaded a bad copy or what I downloaded the one that said downloadthis one.iso
I don't know how my computer could be too slow either because it has 64mb ram 2gig HD 300 mmx processor
Posted by be80be on Nov. 25 2003,01:12at the boot promp type KNOPPIX vga=normal and it should boot it's the fbdev can't use your card
Posted by SenorBurns on Nov. 26 2003,16:50Thanks but it didn't work it loaded quicker but just froze after bios found power management settings message again.
I don't know what the problem is I think I just might delete linux it's too install
