Hey guys, I've got an HP ZE1210 laptop that I want to run slackware on. After a successful install, I reboot the machine and I get this error:
Hard disk boot sector invalid
Press 'H' to rety Hard Drisk, any other key for floppy.
Pressing H gives the same error.
So, I use the Slackware install disk and at the boot prompt I use the following command as it suggests:
bare.i root=/dev/hda2 noinitrd ro
It boots up, and I'm able to get into KDE from here. However, during boot I see a lot of "modprobe: Can't open dependencies file /lib/modules/2.4.31.modules.dep"
I also see similiar errors when trying to rerun network scripts rc.inet1.
So, my questions are:
1: Is there a way to fix my boot problem?
2: what does the boot option bare.i root=/dev/hda2 noinitrd ro mean exactly? And, is this whats causing the modprobe errors?
Thanks in advance, i'll keep doing reasearch and hope for some help!
