I am attempting to boot the gentoo live cd on a beige g3 using bootX 1.2.2 and the following kernel arguments: cdroot root=/dev/ram0 init=linuxrc loop=livecd.squashfs looptype=squashfs console=tty0 nodevfs udev. It starts to boot then freezes. This particular machine has a usb card and an ATI Rage 128 pro video card in the pci slots. Any clue why it is not booting?

Thanks,

Michael

Have you tried the OW kernel?

Can you give us more details as to where it freezes?

I have five such beige G3's and I personally have never seen them boot from a gentoo CD. I have an install I made thru a running YDL much like the alternative install that uses knoppix. But upon seeing your kernel arguments I had to try them out. I got a freeze midway thru the boot process as well, and I even tried the OW-kernel. It stops with these lines:

/etc/hotplug/pci.agent: line 155: 2594 Segmentation Fault $MODPROBE $MODULE >/dev/null 2>&1
... can't load module tulip
missing kernel or user mode driver tulip

Any clues?
