I've installed VL6.0 STD Gold on my Toshiba Satellite Pro 4600 with no problems and am posting this from it.
I'm also trying to install on a Toshiba Portege 3480CT. These have no optical drive.
I installed Zenwalk 6 on the 3480CT as a temporary host linux o/s on /dev/sda4.
/dev/sda1 4 gb is for VL root.
/dev/sda2 1 gb is swap
/dev/sda3 10 gb is /home.
The vinstall-iso.asc and VL6.0-STD-Gold.iso were on a USB stick /dev/sdb1
The text mode installer ran fine and the installation completed without any reported errors.
When I try to boot (lilo works fine), I get :
VFS: Cannot open root device "801" or unknown-block(0,1)
Please append a correct "root=" boot option; here are the available partitions:
0301 ... hda1
0302 ... hda2
0303 ... hda3
0304 ... hda4
Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(0,1)
If I boot with root=0301, I then get:
reiserfs_open: the reiserfs superblock could not be found on /dev/sda1
failed to open the filesystem
A similar error occurs if I install VL to /dev/sda3 and format that partition to ext3.
fscking the partitions from zenwalk does not reveal any problems.
I can mount /dev/sda1 in zenwalk and it all looks fine.
