    crux installation


    when trying to install crux it hangs after booting last line is something like
    loading modules ...ATA, SCSI...
    then it hangs

    i have found that this may be a problem with my hardware not being supported by the boot kernel(i found crux doesn't come with much support for hardware "out of the box")

    can anyone help me setup the kernel correctly?

    its an old laptop (dell inspiron 2500),
    i believe the hdd and cd-rom are scsi. 900Mhz, 128 ram

    I am running puppy on one partition(full hd install) and have had a few others work for me previously(dsl, zenwalk,).

    dunno if its relevant but I'm booting the install from the hdd, through/ grub.
    which is how i normally installed os's in the past.

    as i can read after a simple google search your laptop has an ICH2 ctrl then should boot with CRUX 2.6 iso.

    0 google searches for me...

    no actually I did a lot of searching for this problem. THANKS.

    also if anyone else runs into this, if u download it from ftp it doesnt list 2.6 (or its hidden) you'll have to download it via torrent the .torrent link.

    I'm planning on downloading and installing 2.6 pretty soon. If I run into similar issues I'll post back here. Good luck getting it sorted!
