Running Commentary on CRUX 2.5
I been looking over the online installation handbooks for CRUX 2.4 as compared to 2.5, and found no discernible differences. Therefore, I have a weekend project, and I want to keep a running commentary going to let you know if there are any major incidents or foul-ups.
Part 1 was downloading the .iso. No problems there.
Part 2 now commencing... Installation!
There seems to be quite a few new options in the kernel configuration. Some of them are less than obvious, such as some things for wifi and audio. New kernel for my box is compiling now.
I'll get back tomorrow with more progress and info.
One thing I'm leery of is the kernel. About a month or so ago, I tried updating my 2.4 to 18.104.22.168 and had serious issues with the Intel Ethernet drivers. I could get no Internet at all negating the whole operation. I hope it has been addressed and remedied in the latest kernels since CRUX 2.5 installs 22.214.171.124.
Ya just gotta love it when you think you're rolling along pretty good and the simple things are what trip you up! I have the initial installation complete, and didn't run up against any real problems... until it came time to install GRUB. At first, GRUB refused to recognize either of my drives, but I got half of it fixed up so that I can boot to 2.4. Still having issues with the 2.5 install, though.
Oh well... probably just a typo somewhere in the menu.lst that I haven't caught yet. I'll get it fixed up and let you guys know if I run into the same problem that Dan mentioned about internet connection.
Okay, I'm stuck. And I still think it's just something that I'm missing in my configuration! I've not really made any progress either. Here's the deal...
I managed to get everything compiled and installed. Not a single hang-up until it came to installing GRUB. I've been using the same GRUB file ever since I first installed Fedora Core 6, and have been updating since. Now that I've wiped Fedora 8 off of my box, I had to install a new GRUB file. I know it's installed and working, because I can still boot CRUX 2.4 out of it. But for the life of me I can't get it to recognize the 2.5 install! Any ideas?
By the way, GRUB is installed on the drive that contains 2.5 so I know it's there!
Here ya go:
boot= /dev/hda1 default=0 timeout=10 hiddenmenu title CRUX 2.4 root (hd1,0) kernel (hd1,0)/boot/vmlinuz boot title CRUX 2.5 root (hd0,0) kernel (hd0,0)/boot/vmlinuz boot
