slackware boot problem
hey all wass up
well i installed slackware 9.1 on an old pc , a pentium mmx 166 ghz, 32 ram, 20gb hd, the installation worked fine and i used the partitioning option writen in the book on the slackware website, so everything went fine, and i installed lilo as the bootloader, so after i finished installing, i booted the system up, it checked for hdd and everything and then after saying" verifying dmi pool data" it writes this on all the screan " L 40 40 40 40 40 40 40 ..."
can anyone tell me what might be the problem???:(
i can only work on my pc using the bootable floppy
thanks for any help
it's aLILO problem. You will need to re-install LILO onto your mbr.
Don't ask me how, as I gave up LILO years ago.
well i fixed the problem it was caused by my old bios all i had to do is configure it to auto detect my hd and after i rebooted the pc it worked just fine i got the lilo prompt and everything is ok now
hows that old comp running with linux i've been adived not to install linux on an old system
well man linux can run on any system it's made for that dude you can install only the packages that u need without any other ******** like windows and make it's installation as low as 5 MB if you want ;) nice huh!!!
