I have a problem trying to install 5.x on TravelMate 800lci notebook.
Trying to boot minidisk from 5.2-RC2 or snapshot from 07/01
hangs. Last message seen is:
Timecounter TSC frequency xxxx MHz
Timecounters ticks every 10 ms
enabling/disabling ACPI doesn't matter.
I have tried to create a minimal bootable CD using
boot.flp with "mkisof -b boot.flp boot.flp" with boot.flp
from 5.1, 5.2, 5.2-snap-0701.
In that case kernel boots, but it can't start sysinstall.
Booting verbosely one can see something like:
mounting root from /dev/md0xx
trying to run init from /sbin/init
trying to run init from /stand/sysinstall
and it hangs again :(
Just for the protocol: boot.flp from 4.9 boots and starts sysinstall.
So the problem is: can somebody give me any recommendations on
what should I do to install 5.2?
Can you send me a copy of the message as I am not following the
list at the moment.
