I have finally been able to get Core64 (4.2) working by following the Wiki. Except I haven't been able to get the GUI working yet.
I have installed Core64 using the grub-0.97-splash and pointing it to the core64.gz and vmlinuz64.
Here is what my menu.lst looks like
title Core 64
kernel /boot/vmlinuz64 quiet
initrd /boot/core64.gz tce=sda1
In the beginning everything was booting fine. I would come up to prompt and I could navigate and run commands. I then decided that I wanted to install a GUI so that I could install the rest of my apps and this is where the problem begins.
I installed the following using ab:
Now everytime I reboot and select Core 64 from my grub I come up to a black screen, and I am unable to do anything. No response from the keyboard that I can tell, so I have to do a hard reboot, and then I have the same problem. I tried installing Xorg and Fluxbox too, but still the same problem.
I did find though if I put my Core CD and boot to that it now boots to the GUI. So there is obviously some configuration that I am missing. That or the GUI isn't compatible with Core64.
I'm not sure where to go from here. My main goal was to be able to take advantage of the 8 GB of memory I have in my computer for Virtual Machines in VirtualBox. I think that Core64 is the only way to do that, but now I am stuck.
