I've tried the last ~4 hours to install Sabayon Linux 11 Mate x86 on my machine (hardware details in the signature).
Yes, I've doubled checked the md5sums. They're correct.
I tried UNetBootin and dd to create a bootable USB-Stick (on Ubuntu Linux 12.04 Precise Pangolin).
With the first one I can choose some extra points, which aren't available, when just cloning the .iso.
But only the "Help" point let me boot some text mode.
But the boot partition isn't found. I can access Ubuntu 10.04 on /dev/sda1 but not my Sabayon Linux installation.
I've tried the released Mate and the daily build of this flavour. Both with no luck.
Can someone explain me, how the boot parameters work?
However, the reason I want to reinstall SL is a change from 64Bit back to 32Bit and wiping Lucid while doing it.
After creating the Live pen drive I couldn't even login. ~/.xsession-errors told me, that "startkde" was missing, so I installed LightDM shortly. No idea, how my Display Manager could be removed without an intervention by me … however, I can boot my Sabayon Linux installation on hard disk again.
I'll attach some logfiles, when I am up again. Which one do you need?
- Code: Select all
# fdisk -l
$ cat ~/.xsession-errors
# cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log
