    Elive with ATAPI CDROM and SATA Disk


    Hello all:
    My first thread here.

    I am not the only one with this problem. I am trying to install Elive linux which is Debian with Enlightenment 17 window manager. When I boot the install/live CD it dumps me to the shell when it loads the RAMFS and I cannot find the CDROM.
    dmesg shows the CDROM as found but I cannot find any /dev/hd? devices. Looks like it seend my SATA hard drive OK, /dev/sda?. What can I do here??

    some new motherboards have sata support for cdrom, i think this causes issues with most livecds, i know the latest gentoo works on these machines

    you just have to wait for the drivers/modules to be included...

    if you can download it, try the unstable elive, might work, haven't tried

    elive rocks!!

    Yeah the lastest elive 5.5 unstable boots and installs but it is otherwise very broken.
