Hi uelsk8s,

Here is the code of my second try:

Code: [Select]
# Standardeintrag
default 0
# Wartezeit
timeout 15

# DSL
title DSL
kernel /boot/linux24 root=/dev/hda1 quiet vga=788 acpi apm dma noscsi frugal

# Installation
title vl install
kernel (hd0,0)/boot/sata root=/dev/sata ro
initrd (hd0,0)/boot/initrd.img

My first atempt looked under "installation" like this:

Code: [Select]
title vl install
root (hd0,0)
kernel /boot/sata root=/dev/sata ro
initrd /boot/initrd.img

Hd0 is the boot partation. The installation starts, but hangs up at /dev/sata.

if the sata kernel is in the same folder as the linux24 kernel then your grub entry should be
title vl install
root (hd0,0)
kernel /boot/sata root=/dev/hda1 ro
initrd /boot/initrd.img

OK, we make progress...

The installation process stops now her:
INIT: Entering runlevel: 5
FATAL: Could not load /lb/modules/2.6.18.5/mudules.dep: No such file or directory

It's me again!

I'm greeted from Vector Linux Install ... but ...

libhardware(EIDE): directory /proc/ide/ inesistente !
libhardware(SCS): directory /proc/scsi/ inesistente !


and after that:

/usr/sbin/setup: cannot create /tmp/setup.log: read-only file system

What can I do next?
Thx Benjamin

if it gives you a shell after the read-only file system error then try to remount root as rw

mount -o remount / rw
and then run setup
/usr/sbin/setup

after mount -o remount / rw or  "can't create lock file /etc/mtab~952: Read-only file system (use -n flag to overide). After that I tried: mount -n -o remount / rw. After that: "mount: you must specify the filesystem type". What can I try else?

mount should tell you what is mounted ant the filesystem it is using.
type mount and see what it says.
then try mount -t FILESYSTEM -n -o remount / rw. (replace FILESYSTEM with whatever mount tells you)
did you add the rw to the kernel line in menu.lst?

Hi, It doesn't work, but I won't give up.
Mount tells me: warning: can't open /etc/mtab: No such file or directory.

"mount -v proc /proc -n -t proc" gives "proc on /proc type proc (rw)" but
"mount -o remount rw /" or "mount -o remount rw" displays: "can't create lock file /etc/mtab~951: Read-only file system (use -n flag to overide)"
