I'm happy to say I'm progressing with booting Fedora 11 XFE LiveCD
(i386) re-spin on the Gateway Touchpad internet appliance.|
What I did thanks to the suggestion of Jim <[email protected]> was adding "nomodeset" (unquoted) to the boot parameters and this seems to get rid of the initial delay.
I also removed "quiet" so I could see what was going on and added NOAPIC and ACPI=off
The problem I'm having now is that is stays about 1 minute and a half idle after "starting udev: /min/mknod: ' /dev/loop0' : File exists
/bin/mknod: ' /dev/loop1' : File exists
/bin/mknod: ' /dev/loop2' : File exists
/bin/mknod: ' /dev/loop3' : File exists
/bin/mknod: ' /dev/loop4' : File exists
/bin/mknod: ' /dev/loop5' : File exists
/bin/mknod: ' /dev/loop6' : File exists
/bin/mknod: ' /dev/loop7' : File exists
HERE is where it sits idle for about 1 minute and a half...
Then it suddenly wakes up and continues....
Setting hostname localhost.locadomain: [OK]
What is it doing at that point?.
Suffice to say that a 2.4 kernel based LindowsOS 4.0 (the OS I had on this system until now) boots in a fraction of the time...
