First, sorry if answering in the wrong place, second sorry for my English, third sorry if I'm asking something stupid that is already somewhere in this forum.
I'm trying to install vector on my newly received 4 gb usb pen drive. In general, the stick should appear as a /dev/sdX disk, but the installation boot kernel lack the USB support so,
there is no /dev/sdX pointed to my USB pendrvie, only the /dev/sda pointed to my sata hard drive).
What I have manage to do is boot
the installation process from the stick, that was easy, I copy the isolinux directory from the .iso installation CD to the pen drive root directory, I syslinux my pen drive, rename the isolinux.cfg file in syslinux.cfg, and there I was, I was able too boot from the peen, found the dvddrive as the installation media, but off course no usb and no other drive to fdisk beside my hda drive.
Ok, so I guess I need a boot kernel with usb support in the setup process. To start with something, can you point me to the kernel source use for building the scsi and sata kernels for the 5.8 standard edition (the ones in the /isolinux/kernel directory)?
And other question, is there some sort of a default file system put in the boot kernel image (the file systems that is loaded in /dev/ram) or this file system is loaded from another image file? If so, what file?
If I'll succeed I’ll make a nice wiki
