Re: Install report: kernel-image*.deb is missing

Eric Bus <eric@fambus.nl> a écrit :

| I used apt-get to install kernel-image-2.4.24-1-686. When you get the

I intervene in this thread as I ran into the same problem.
First, I had to do a

chroot /target

before I can run apt-get (or else: error while loading shared libraries).
Then, apt-get install kernel-image-2.4.23-1-686 installs and sets up
cramfsprogs and initrd-tools, but fails at configuring kernel-image-*.
Here is what I get:

error reading /lib/modules/2.4.23-1-686/build: No such f. or d.
Deleting /lib/same_path/build
/usr/sbin/mkinitrd: /dev/fd does not exist
Failed to create initrd image

Same problem with 2.4.22. For info, I do not have a floppy drive.

Next, if I try to continue installation and install lilo, it fails. I
can almost read line like "modprobe: failed to load vga-stuff" but it
blinks too quickly. That reminds me of one thing: in early stage of
installation (hardware detection), I can read in /var/log/messages
"insmod ide-detect" (this takes some time, a few seconds, although all
other insmods are very fast) and is followed by "modprobe: failed to
load module ide-disk". Could that be unusual/related?

Thanks for any help, and regards.
