Unable to install Knoppix 3.7
I've mentioned this in the Mandrake forum previously, but I'm hoping if someone in this forum can tell me once and for all if a faulty disk is to blame.
I got a copy of Knoppix 3.7 with a PC magazine and it says you can install it, just hold down control-alt & F3 and type 'knoppix-installer' and follow the wizard. All goes well until the stage to format the chosen partition arrives and then this message appears;
error:formatting of failed.some messages from mkfs.ext3:usage:mkfs.ext3 [-c: -t -l
filemane] [-b block-size] [-f fragment -size] [ -i bytes -per node] [-m reserved -blocks -percentage] [o creator -os] [-g blocks per group] [-l volume -label] [-m last mounted directory] [-o feature [,...] ] [-r fs-revision] [-r raid_opts] [-q vSV] device [blocks count]
There is very little support on the Knoppix website (that I can find) but those in the Mnadrake forum and the IRC reckon the disk is faulty. Can anyone familiar with Knoppix advise me before I give this up?
