Hi,

I was trying to install pardus 2007.1 on my thindpad x40 from an external usb cd drive. But I got the following error:

couldn't find mount media.
bin/sh: can't access tty; job control turned off

Is there any way I could bypass this?

Thank you in advance.

Maybe

Pardus reads USB CD- drive as USB- Stick or USB- Harddisk. So it will read it as Sda1 instead hdc.

I only know something than complicated problemsolving.

On CD there is an directory /boot/grub with the files menu.lst and grub.conf those files must be changed hdc to Sda1.

This means You have to copy CD to harddrive, change the files, writing a new CD, then install.

I guess there are much more elegant solutions, because I am not a profi.

Hope this could be helpfull

Sorry was not specific enough. You have to open the files (grub.conf menu.lst) and change hdc to sda1

Bye

Thanks for your reply.

I looked at grub.conf and menu.lst, but I couldn't find 'hdc' or anything like that..

Cheers.

Sorry I was wrong

there is a file on CD named /boot/grub/menu-XX.lst XX= de or nl or el etc. = Linguage

The file inside looks like this:
default 0
timeout 10
splashimage (cd)/boot/grub/splash.xpm.gz
background 10333C

title=Pardus 2007.1 Felis chaus
root (cd)
kernel (cd)/boot/kernel-2.6.18.8-80 root=/dev/ram0 video=vesafb:nomtrr,pmipal,ywrap,1024x768-32@60 splash=silent,fadein,theme:pardus console=tty2 mudur=livecd,language:en quiet
initrd (cd)/boot/initramfs-2.6.18.8-80

title=Pardus 2007.1 Felis chaus (Standard Graphics Mode)
root (cd)
kernel (cd)/boot/kernel-2.6.18.8-80 root=/dev/ram0 video=vesafb:off mudur=livecd,language:en quiet

initrd (cd)/boot/initramfs-2.6.18.8-80

title = Memory test
root (cd)
kernel (cd)/boot/memtest.bin

title=Continue From Harddisk
rootnoverify (hd0)
chainloader +1

title=Other Languages
configfile (cd)/boot/grub/menu.lst

_______________________________________________________
