Subject: Re: [SLE] Bad magic
I'm having trouble putting it onto 2 of my old machines too.
One is a 486-66 with 12 meg of RAM and a 200meg HD and the
other is a 486-33 with 8 meg of RAM and 620 meg of HD on 2
It has a Sound blaster CD, I created 32mg of swap.
the install starts and then dies with the RED screen and
this message on console 3
Error Open Output File, detail: 0 File systemCmd.cc
line 530 YAST Return Code 256 (errno = 4)
Now it fails to read the CDrom at all, even though the sbpcd
module has loaded successfully.
I'm trying with a PLIP connection but am unable to ping the
machine, nd it is unable to mount the exported CD.
What's annoying is that this machine had a perfectly good
running copy of 5.1 before I decided to upgrade to 6.3.
