[SOLVED] Vector Linux 6.0 STD installed. But Hangs on start up
i have succesfully installed VL6.0 on my desktop (together with other and recently used 5.8 and Sw12.0) install successful but upon booting (i have included 6.0 in my 5.8's lilo) it just stops on a point where in it says:
VFS: Mounting /dev/hdc12 read only.. etc..
"Freeing unused kernel memory..212k freed"
i am not sure if this is a mem failure (though all of my linux boxes runs properly)
i have re-installed it.. encountered the same. .
as i have checked my SW12.0's dmesg, same line appears but it boots..
ReiserFS: hdc5: checking transaction log (hdc5)
ReiserFS: hdc5: Using r5 hash to sort names
VFS: Mounted root (reiserfs filesystem) readonly.
Freeing unused kernel memory: 392k freed

1. installed successfully
2. LILO installed in boot record of /dev/hdc12 --where 6.0 is installed
3. added 6.0 in my current LILO (VL 5.8)
4. ALL BOXES (sw12.0, vl5.8, zw4.6.1) are loading except VL6.0
managed to mount my VL6.0 (/dev/hdc12) using slackware. here is Vl6.0's LILO conf
