setup stalled ?
« on: April 29, 2009, 12:43:09 pm »
Hi,

VL 6.0 Light

I installed with the 3 partitions and installed OK but before setup I get....

Loading linuxEBDA is big; kernel setup stack overlaps LILO second stage

...after the GUI/TUI login screen....

I also tried to login vasm, root, startx, etc. but asks for PW and leaving it blank doesn't work and no setup yet so no PW was provided.

Thanks,

Bill - Vector newbie but have installed DSL, Puppy, Freespire, etc

Something went wrong with the installation. At this point, it is probably quicker to do the installation over again than to try troubleshooting it. Pay close attention, keep a log of what happens. If same thing happens again, post back with your computer specs, hard drive partitioning/formatting setup, and symptoms encountered.
