Getting HURD up and running
Ok, have been trying to get Hurd up and running, but I am having a little
I used the big tar ball method to install hurd on a 950 mb partition.
I have a K6-II 450, ALI Aladdin V AGP chipset, 64 Mb PC100 ram, a 13 Gb
harddrive with 2 ext2 partitions (including hurd) a reiserfs partition, a
BeOS partition and a swap partition. I have a 3Com 3C905C ethernet card, a
Nvidia Riva128 video card, ixMicro TV tuner/video capture card, and a
SB16PNP sound card. Finally, I have a PS/2 mouse and keyboard
I can get grub to boot hurd from a floppy. However, when hurd begins to
boot, if I press anything on my keyboard, I get a kernel panic. If I try
and just let it boot, hurd just sorta stops after it detects my 2 COM ports.
Does anyone have any ideas about getting hurd to boot for me? Should I
just give up? I would really like to contribute to the project, but I
can't do that without a working hurd.
