Posted by antineo2000 on April 10 2005,20:08I'm trying to get embeded-dsl on my camera's flash card so I can show my friends how cool Linux can be. I've been following < these instructions > but when I exicute the batch file to start QEMU and DSL starts to run, it says in red:
"Can't find KNOPPIX filesystem, sorry. Dropping you to a (very limited) shell."
Where can I find the "KNOPPIX filesystem" and how would I install it? thanks.
Posted by chrisr on April 13 2005,03:37I bought DSL on the flash card and am running into the same problem. It looks like boot up off the flash works at the start, but then early on the system starts searching for the CD. I would appreciate any suggestions on how to address this.

if you have a fat32 filesystem on your harddisk, than copy knoppix dir to its root
I do not know if dir must be with letters uppercase or lower (maybe lower), but it is important

I had the same error after having to seek very a long time, I solved the problem, see my website : < http://sitelibre.free.fr/knoppix/knoppix.html > -> 28.1)
My trick is :
Replace in the line number 2 (in the file ./knoppix/knoppix ) :
ps : Excuse-me for my bad english !!

Posted by velociraptor on Feb. 16 2007,22:13If you are trying to boot from a USB flash drive another alternative is to try a different USB port. I switched my flash drive from the "auxillary" USB ports on the front of my computer to an unpowered USB hub (keyboard in my case) and the "Can't find KNOPPIX" error went away and my embedded system booted.
I have yet to try it with a powered hub or using the USB ports directly on the motherboard (too lazy to crawl under my desk at the moment), but it may work from those as well.
