    [SOLVED] Install Problems


    After suffering much pain with Ubuntu Intrepid Ibex I thought I would try a switch to Mandriva. I purchased a Mandriva One 2009 CD but cannot install same.
    When I boot from the CD I receive BusyBox messages including:
    "Cannot run '/etc/init.d/rcS' : No such file or directory."
    "-sh: can't access tty; job control turned off"
    Can someone please tell me how I can Install Mandriva.

    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    Install Problems

    I just saw a Mandriva splash screen and then the BusyBox quoted messages appeared.

    Have you tried your Mandriva disc on a different computer?

    Its difficult to know pinpoint what is causing the problem from the information you gave. It could be a hardware problem or a corrupt disc. Try a different disc ad see if that helps resolve the problem.
