Posted: Feb 3, 12, 7:11    Liquorix failed on netbook
Installed Wheezy on netbook Acer Aspire One.
Installed from nightly build business card CD.
Everything OK, did basic install, then installed smxi OK.
Proceeded to install liquorix, made it default.
Complete fail on boot, had to boot into Debian kernel OK.
Reinstalled liquorix from smxi, same problem, complete failure after second line: module unix not found.
This is normal because Debian kernel also does that, but it continues whereas liquorix does not.
I will continue investigating this in the evening, gotta go now.
In the meantime, please let me know all the info you need: dmesg, lshw, etc.
Will post everything you need to troubleshoot issue.
Thanks.

Installed latest kernel on said netbook.
3.2.0-4.dmz.1-liquorix-i686.
Same old, kernel crashes after second line, no boot.
Had to revert to Debian kernel, OK there.
Purged liquorix kernel and sources, set default to Debian.
Still no answer...

He needs to see: inxi -Fx

to see everything in the system, that's always the case, no exceptions. Also don't ever expect anyone to remember a system from some other posting, ie, always post this data so that damentz knows everything he needs to know about your hardware.

thanks, forgot for public posting requires the -z to filter out data that shouldn't be public, ie: inxi -Fxz

but I edited your output so that's fine.

What happens when you boot to the liquorix kernel? All you explained was that it failed, which doesn't provide me any information at all, other than it's the opposite of working. If you're getting no screen output, try booting with the nomodeset kernel parameter.

"Reinstalled liquorix from smxi, same problem, complete failure after second line: module unix not found."
Posted feb 3., please read in its entirety.
Tried to post a dmesg with error, but could not find any after booting into Debian kernel.
I really don't know how to help since I cannot take a screenshot of a computer that does not boot and will eventually go into a prompt like this:
initramfs>
Please post instructions as to how to boot with nomodeset kernel parameter.

Well, nomodeset won't help here. It looks like linux can't find your root partition. From a working kernel, can you show us the output of /boot/grub/grub.cfg? Output from /etc/fstab would help us too.

Let's see: inxi -plu

just to confirm that the partitions match, although they'd really have to match for it to boot, but let's see.

That unix error you can ignore, I see that on some recent test installs, second line, like you say, so I don't think that''s related.

I don't believe that kernel logging is running at this point of the boot process, so you won't see anything in the kernel or dmesg logs.
