Topic: [SOLVED] LiveCD crashes on bootup

If you have problem with the liveCD crashing at bootup, try typing this into the boot: prompt

linux noapic initrd=initrd.gz root=/dev/ram0 init=/linuxrc ramdisk_size=16384

certain motherboards have problems with linux apic - primarily because they test with windows only and linux apic tends to still be a little buggy.

This was tested with LiveCD version 0.2.5-3


Re: [SOLVED] LiveCD crashes on bootup

What crash are you talking about?


Re: [SOLVED] LiveCD crashes on bootup

The error is:

<0>Kernel panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill init!

using the noapic option fixes it


Re: [SOLVED] LiveCD crashes on bootup

Is it early in the boot process or after it trys to find the correct cdrom drive?
