Re: Could not boot for first time

Hello Shyam,  I've just installed GNU/Hurd for the first time
about an hour ago.  I got the same problem you did.

Here is *exactly* what I type to get it working:
grub> root (hd1,0)
grub> kernel /boot/gnumach.gz -s root=device:hd2s1
grub> module /hurd/ext2fs.static --multiboot-command-line=${kernel-command-line} --host-priv-port=${host-port} --device-master-port=${device-port} --exec-server-task=${exec-task} -T typed ${root} $(task-create) $(task-resume)
grub> module /lib/ld.so.1 /hurd/exec $(exec-task=task-create)

I robbed this from the 'menu.lst' on the grub boot
floppies.  The 'module' commands have to be typed all
on one line and be careful with the braces {} and
parenthesis ().  Also, i think 'device:' is necessary
in the 'kernel' command.

Hope this helps move you on to the next problem ;) 

My system works now, I just need to figure out how to
mount my CDROM.
