Re: 2007.08 Don't Panic Isos released, installation feedback

hmm even weirder is the fact that the Duke ftp iso didnt work quite well either. it downloaded the packages but u couldnt actually see them downloading in /dev/tty5 & also it couldnt generate locale which is even weirder beacause that was only an issue on the linuxtag iso.
anyway i installed for the first time from a base iso (a dont panic one) and worked very well.
i have no idea what would cause the ftp isos to behave like that though

Re: 2007.08 Don't Panic Isos released, installation feedback

Installation worked perfectly!

The only error was:

INIT: Id "c0" respawning too fast: disabled for 5 minutes

but that could be because I have the serial ports on this machine disabled.

Fantastic work, keep it up!

Re: 2007.08 Don't Panic Isos released, installation feedback

I have the same problem as Skylar
even with disablehooks=arch-addons the boot prcess stops at:

NTFS driver 2.1.28 [Flags: R/W MODULE].
NTFS volume version 3.1.

When I try other bootoptions (except ide-legacy) my partitions won't be recongised. Not to good for install, is it? ;-)

EDIT: this works for me to come to the shell: arch --ide-legacy --disablehooks=arch-addons
BUT: I still see no partitions... (With Duke CD install works)

exactly same boot problem here (I posted it in http://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=36065).
Tried al combinations of boot options, no success.
The ARCH-CD boots perfectly on an another PC, equipped with a harddisk with equivalent partitions (NTFS, FAT32, EXT3, Swap).

Same problem for me. I tried install arch on clean hard disk and everything worked well. So i decided to install on disk with windows partition - unsuccesfull.
For me one possible solution - since i don't use it anymore i can finally get rid of windows tongue

Re: 2007.08 Don't Panic Isos released, installation feedback

I did clean install. As normal user if I do startx I get

/usr/share/fonts/misc:unscaled" refcount is 2, should be 1; fixing

I know it's not big deal, but with "Duke" this was not a case. Good name for this release: "Don't panic". lol

That error message has been around a very long time.
Noone seems to know where it comes from, but it appears to be harmless.

I'm having the same problem.

NTFS driver 2.1.28 [Flags: R/W MODULE].
NTFS volume version 3.1.

On a Dell 700m laptop. I used arch --disablehooks=arch-addons and was finally able to get to the command prompt, however no hard drives were visible in the setup.

Got the same NTFS problem. I installed from the Duke release instead, worked like a charm

I had the same problem trying it on old desktop (CPU Celleron 600MHz, 128MB RAM). Archie 2007.08 also hung. I succesfully run faunos based on 2.6.21 kernel (previous two are 2.6.22 based). But then faunos hung when I tried "mount /dev/hda1 /mnt" exactly like the previous two. But when I used "ntfs-3g /dev/hda1 /mnt" it worked. So it seems to me that ntfs in-kernel driver is the cause of the problem.

Friend of mine has the same configuration, but had no problems with Don't Panic.

what do you mean with special? i dont think there's a special type or version of ntfs partitions. but probably the partition layout is confusing something.

mine looks like this
sda1 primary ntfs
extended
sda5 ntfs
sda6 ntfs
sda8 ext3
sda7 swap

Re: 2007.08 Don't Panic Isos released, installation feedback

Actually there are 5 versions of NTFS :
version 1 and 1.1 -  used in early windows nt versions
version 1.2  - NT 3.51 and NT 4
version 3.0 - Windows 2000
version 3.1 - Windows xp
Although windows 2003 & vista seem to use the same version as windows xp, they offer some ntfs features that xp doesn't.

If those with problems with ntfs during installing would tell us the windows version they used to create the ntfs partition, it might help troubleshooting.

If those with problems with ntfs during installing would tell us the windows version they used to create the ntfs partition, it might help troubleshooting.

In my case (and I suppose in all others) the last message is:

NTFS volume version 3.1.

And everyone wrote about WinXP as I remember.

And, as I wrote earlier, I had similar hung after "mount /dev/sda1 /mnt" on FaunOS with 2.6.21 kernel, while "ntfs-3g /dev/sda1 /mnt" worked fine.
So it seems to me like the original in-kernel ntfs driver has problems mounting XP partitions.
