Slackware 12 boot problem
Ok, here is the problem:
After i downloaded the dvd from torrent i booted the cd and did fresh install.
at the lilo promp a loaded the linux i get blank screeen, which is weard because i used kernel 126.96.36.199 with Slackware 11.
than i tryed booting again from cd with:
login with root and make my own config /about 3 times/
hugesmp.s root=/dev/sda2 rdinitd= ro
the last time i got an kernel panic error that says somthing about driver 8.2 /which is something about my hdd/. I try to fix it but i couldent, so i decided to do a new fresh install.
I put my dvd in and rebooted and when i asks me about the source i put auto find dvd. It searches but doesnt find anything, so i try manually to load the source, but still nothing.
I decidet to see if the disc i ok and i opend it under window$ and says that the disk is empty!!!:shock:
so i try again with new dvd, again all the steps that i described above, but now i used the kernel-huge-smp-188.8.131.52 config files from my previous slackware current, and still blank screen. all the modules that i need are loaded.
Now the disk is still the same, windows says its empty, and i could boot from it but when i get setup source selection it cannot find the cd/dvd-rom.
Now i downloaded the dvd from mirror, but i dont know what is wrong, and why after one install the dvd is erased and windows says its empty??
What could it be wrong?? :confused:I'm very confused now, 2 days no success...:???::drown:
EDIT: i get this when i type lilo:
