usb install : unetbootin fails, lin_start_here fails... Fail

Post#1 by anybodhi » 01 Sep 2011, 11:38

hi

i was aware to discover the next gen of slax-remix and feel
very deapointed today :

lin_start_here fails on debian, scripts is talking of an unknown -n option
and hangs...
unetbootin install but boot is not working... (linux not found)
manual install (copy looped iso to key create extlinux.conf run extlinux -i and install-mbr) fails

i notice very few distros are failing the 3 said possibilities so at the moment Porteus wins
an extra ball !!!

so i will stay away from Porteus till next trial... (too bad) .

:evil: (not so friendly i hate loosing my time) :O:

ani [considering cd's are dead do not feel like burning anymore]

hi anybohdi,
lin_start_here fails on debian, scripts is talking of an unknown -n option
and hangs...
this is a known issue which is already fixed in Porteus development snapshot. check out changelog for upcoming Porteus 1.1 release:

(last entry in the log)

moving to "Newbie questions"...
Please add [Solved] to your thread title if the solution was found.
