0.4-20070713 - 0.4-20070921
When installed on CF/HDD, files which exist may not be found during compiling in the source tree. It happens when the ext3 file system is created by mke2fs of e2fsprogs-1.40.2 in the installer. A workaround is to reinstall by 0.4-20070928 or later whose the version of e2fsprogs is 1.39.
The installer does not work well. A workaround to install 0.4-current is as follows.
o From CD-ROM
Boot from the CD-ROM of 0.3-STABLE. When you see the login prompt, eject the CD-ROM of 0.3-STABLE and insert a CD-ROM of 0.4-current. Login as root, execute fdisk(8) for partitioning and do sysinst(8).
o From FD
Boot from FD of 0.3-STABLE. Login as root, execute fdisk(8) for partitioning and do sysinst(8).
GRUB installation failure from sysinst(8) or with /usr/mdec/installboot in the installation FD or CD-ROM.
Install 0.2-current with sysinst(8). Then follow one of the below procedures.
o Install GRUB natively as follows.
# e2fsck /dev/hda1 # mount -t ext2 /dev/hda1 /mnt # grub grub> root (hd0,0) grub> setup (hd0) grub> quit # umount /mnt
o Shutdown, boot from 0.1-STABLE FD or CD-ROM, and install GRUB manually as follows.
# e2fsck /dev/hda1 # mount -t ext2 /dev/hda1 /mnt # ln -s /mnt/boot /boot # /usr/mdec/installboot --root-directory=/mnt /dev/hda
/ and /usr must be in the same partition.
Some commands in /bin and /sbin load shared libraries in /usr/lib.
MAKEDEV segmentaion fault in sysinst(8).
Because of segmentaion fault of chmod(1) and chown(1). Please follow the below procedure after booting with 0.1-STABLE FD.
# e2fsck /dev/hda1 # mount -t ext2 /dev/hda1 /mnt # cd /mnt/dev # ./MAKEDEV generic # cd / # umount
Installation failure by way of PC LAN Card.
depmod(8) does not work. Please follow the below procedure after booting with FD.
# cd /lib/modules/2.4.20/pcmcia # insmod pcmcia_core.o.gz # insmod i82365.o.gz [poll_interval=100] # insmod ds.o.gz # cardmgr
Insert your PC LAN Card (3c574_cs, 3c589_cs, fmvj18x_cs, and pcnet_cs are available. See SUPPORTED.CARDS of pcmcia-cs). You see the following message.
cardmgr : module /lib/modules/2.4.20/pcmcia/<driver name>.o not available
where <driver name> is one of 3c574_cs, 3c589_cs, fmvj18x_cs, and pcnet_cs. Eject your PC LAN Card then execute the following command.
# gzip -d <driver name>.o.gz
Insert your PC LAN Card, check interface and eth0 available with
# ifconfig -a
Modules loaded are listed with
# cat /proc/modules
