  • Linux ICE 2 install issue on reboot

    I've installed LinuxICE on a virtual machine on my Mac Mini using VM Ware. The installation worked okay but after using Apps-->Setup and then Apps-->Setup-->ICE Configuration when I restarted, I got a fatal error. that says something about error inserting fbcon (/lib/modules/1.2.6.28-17-generic/Kernel/drivers/video/console/fbcon.ko)

    It then dumps me to the shell. Prior to that, the nGhost front end would launch and was working. Any ideas what might be the problem?



    [Edit - this is related to video somehow. When I built the virtual machine, I checked the Linux 2.6.x option. Is that the right version? Also, there may be a compatibility mode I can use to 'downgrade' the virtual machine. I'm just not certain since it booted and worked prior to running the setup options.]

      i wonder if ice configure actually screwed things up. 2.0.1 no longer needs it. i will have it removed in the future.

      give installation a try without running iceconfigure? the fbcon module looks suspect, but the real error is that it couldn't mount the root drive. You didn't format it something crazy like btrfs did you ?

        I'll try a reinstall. The main feature I was looking for from the iceconfigure was auto sign in. I may try to download 2.01 rather than 2.0, which, I think, is the version I am trying.

        I didn't do any crazy formatting to it, I swear. I woudn't have the faintest idea how, anyways.

        Also, I oringinally installed it from a disk image file but it would run setup-->install. I burned a CD and installed it from there. It may appear to be network installed -I have no idea how VM Ware shows the DVD drive.

          Yeah, 2.0.1 will fix the autologin after the first login automagically. So lemme get the steps you performed right: 1) install, 2) reboot, 3) ice-configure, 4) reboot, 5) broke?

            Bingo. That was the sequence.

            Looks like the 2.01 server is still not responding but I'll check it again to download the version.
