I’ve got a silly problem. It is probably something obvious, I did try to read the forums and Wiki before posting, but I can't see any related problem.
I have trying to enable Tiny Coreplus (4.3.1) on a Toshiba network, NB300. Already installed Windows 7 Starter and PCLinuxOS 2010. Works fine, if a bit slow, therefore I wanted TC to speed things up.
I have done a frugal install to a small partition, without the bootloader install, then manually pointed Grub (0.97) towards the partition with the following:
title Tiny Core
Grub loads up and freezes after:
Filesystem type is ext2fs, partition type 0x83
[linux-bzimage, setup=0x3600, size=0x261c40]
***at this point nothing*** It freezes.
The Live USB stick worked perfectly. I am mystified.
Does that grub section look OK? Or have I missed off something critical or silly?
I have used TC, off and on, since the early days, straight from the USB stick. Never needed to do a HD install. I am baffled why it doesn’t work.
I tried a various permutations and options on the kernel command line without any success.
