I've had a problem, and would appreciate any advice I can get on fixing
I have a Intel celeron 633, with 192 MB of RAM and a brand spanking new
120 MB HD
After replacing the old HD with the new one (mentioned above) I
proceeded to install Fedora 4 from discs. The installation process went well,
with no error messages.
When I tried to boot up, it locked up after setting the host name. I
remembered that the NIC card in the computer had failed to work for
another linux computer of mine, so I replaced it with a spare NIC from
another linux box, and tried again. No Joy.
The messages it gave back follow:
mknod:failed to creat . dev.zero: 17
starting udev [ok]
initializing hardware storage network audio done [ok]
setting clock (localtime): mon Jul 4 09:02:01 PDT 2005
Loading default keymap (us): [ok]
setting hostname Ky: [ok]
This is where it freezes up.
Can somebody please tell me how to fix this?
[update: I tried reinstalling it with just a personal desktop install without any of the extra bells and whistles I tried the first time, and I got rid of the mknod error. However, it still hung up after the hostname.]
