Sorry if this is a dup. I wasn't subscribed when I sent it the first
I posted a few weeks about having problems installing sarge amd64 on a
Tyan K8WE MB. I have gotten past the initial problems and have even
installed sarge on this machine. The problem now is it dies during the
boot process with the following:
pivot_root: No such file or directory
/sbin/init: 432: cannot open dev/console: No such file
Kernel panic: Attempted to kill init!
Some googling indicates this was a bug found and fixed during the
installer development, however, I've since tried installing with a daily
build of the deb amd64 installer (7-6-2005) and the same thing happens.
I've tried both the generic and smp kernels with the same result.
I have successfully installed and booted Ubuntu so I don't believe this
is a hardware configuration issue. It has been suggested to install a
newer kernel (the Ubuntu version I installed uses 2.6.11) with knoppix,
but I have had no luck going this route due to my not being able to
figure out how to do this.
Looking for suggestions...
