LinuxPPC 99 Q3: Problem Installing on PowerBook G3 (Lombard)
I'm a newbie, but it did read/follow the installation guide.
I formatted my internal HD (one 4GB partition for Mac OS, and two for LInux
"/" and "swap", nearly 2GB and 96MB, respectively).
Next, I used the X-Windows installer to install LinuxPPC, rebooted, and
configured BootX as the manual directed (unchecked "use RAM disk", set the
root device correctly, checked "no video driver").
Everything appeared to be going well until the following error message
reared its ugly head.
Error: proc must be mounted
Signal 11 caught by ps (procps version 2.0.2)
Before the error message, there was another line that read
pidof: mount returned not-zero exit status
After the error message, there was a message that said "waiting 100
seconds". After a short while, the boot process appeared to progress
forther, but with INIT: ID "insert various processes here" respowning too
fast: disabled for 5 min.
I should mention that I am using the 400mhz lombard with DVD and 6.0GB HD.
I have a Teac 6x CD-R connected to the SCSI port. Connected to one USB port
is a keyboard, mouse, and gamepad. Attached to the other is a Newer Uflash
Smartmedia reader, Epson SC 900 printer, and Techworks 4-port USB hub.
Also, I am using an external monitor. I didn't disconnect anything for the
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. I'm sure I probably did
