Getting Colinux to Run
Hi I am trying to install Colinux with debian on it and wasnt sure if I should post on here or another forum on here, as you can see I decided to post here. I am going through installing it and everything goes right, up until I go to start Colinux W/ Debian and it comes up with this screen:
# This process will install (if necessary) the coLinux modules for the
# coLinux kernel.
Determining /, found.
mount: Mounting /dev/dobd0 on /mnt/linux failed: No Such Device
Unmount: forced umount of <null> failed!
failed. <trying again>
umount: forced umount of <null> Failed!
Initrd: Unmount Failed on rootfs
Try to run coLinux without initrd. Comment out initrd from configuation.
Press <Enter> to continue.
(If you hit enter and it exits the batchfile I made( I put this in the target area of the batchfile: colinux-daemon.exe -t nt -c default.colinux.xml)) I have tried to delete out the initrd text in configuration(thinking that Comment out initrd means to delete it) but it doesnt work with it. I was hoping you could help get this started successfully. I wasn't quite sure if there was a problem with the xml file I have so I posted it below in hopes someone could help.
Here is the Configuration file I have for it (default.colinux.xml):
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>
- <!-- This line needs to point to your root file system.
For example change "root_fs" to the name of the Debian image.
Inside coLinux it will be /dev/cobd0
Block Device Aliasing: You can now handle most dual-boot issues
by adding an alias="devname" to block_device. i.e. alias="hda",
alias="hda1" You can do this for SCSI as well as IDE. You need
to be aware that if you add an alias, you need to change your
bootparams root="devname" appropriately (you may need to use
devfs naming in some situations).
<block_device index="0" path="\DosDevices\c:\coLinux\root_fs" enabled="true" />
- <!-- This line can specify a swap file if you wish, or an additional
image file, it will /dev/cobd1. Additional block_devices can
be specified in the same manner by increasing the index
<block_device index="1" path="\DosDevices\c:\coLinux\swap_device" enabled="true" />
- <!-- This is an experimental feature, it may not function completely.
<cofs_device index="0" type="flat" path="\DosDevices\C:\colinux\swap_384MB" enabled="true" />
- <!-- bootparams allows you to pass kernel boot parameters
- <!-- Initial RamDISK (initrd) support
<initrd path="initrd.gz" />
- <!-- image allows you to specify the kernel to boot
<image path="vmlinux" />
- <!-- this line allows you to specify the amount of memory available
<memory size="384" />
- <!-- This allows you to modify networking parameters, see the README
or website or wiki for more information
<network index="0" type="tap" />
