Install issue, 64-bit Linux
this distro does not have the dosutils folder, or the autorun.exec programs as are provided on my linux 7.1 distro which is very happy to boot on my amd semplon k8s-mx motherboard. The error message "cannot read cdrom" etc as documented elsewhere in this forum does not seem to relate to the real problem which is that the necessary boot programs were never provided on the three cd distro sent to me. (nor the dvd sent to the other correspondent I presume.)
Could we not get this rectified please with a re-issue to all those purchasers!
k8S-MX booting from cdrom
sorry that pre-amble identifying elements is not displayed.
distro is mandriva 10.1 amd 64 bit, the hard drive controller is scsi - not SATA which I have disabled in the bios. booting from cdrom is ok from redhat linux 9, mandriva 7.1, w98se. Clue to the knowledgeable linux buff is that syslog says :
warning, insmod failed (keybdev(null)) (2)
AUTOMATIC: parameter cdrom for method means returning CDROM drive
after which : succeeded ide-cd, sr_mod, usb-storage messages but dies
with msg :- looking for scsi media
kernel msg equivalent: EXT-2-fs warning: checktime reached, running ...is recommended;
Have installed 2.6.15 (amd64) kernel on rh9 (2.4.20-8) with interesting results but at least sis190 then works and I have broadband - hooray.
Hoping for solution but fear there is a bug in k8S-MX
