[EN] Waiting for /dev to be fully populated ...
« on: 2012/05/27, 19:38:06 »
Having installed "siduction-one-step-beyond-i386" on a new HP Pavilion g7 Notebook PC (BIOS-version F.42; Intel Core i5-245OM; CPU 2,50 GHz; 6 GB RAM; 640 GB HD; Intel HD Graphics 3000; pre-installed with Windows 7 Home Ed.) after the complete deletion of the Windows-stuff.

But unfortunately after starting the computer from HD, the screen goes black with the last message:

waiting for /dev to be fully populated ...

I waited for half an hour, but in vain! Thanks already for any help.

Greetings,
Jorg

Hello towo,

1st: because I had the old image present on a USB-stick already!

2nd: which KDE-related siduction-iso would be more appropriate regarding the specifications of the above computer?

you shall have the 64 bits version, the one with ..."amd64..." in the name.
 
siduction-12.1-desperado-kde-amd64-201205212202.iso

By the way, I wonder why the 64 bit versions has the name ...amd64... (and 32 bit have ....i386)... maybe it will confuse some ones, As I remember amd was first making a 64 bit cpu, maybe that's the explanation? And i386 thats really a stone-age cpu ;)

Hallo vilde,

what makes you think that I have to use the 64 bits-version? The computer-specs?

jörg, your cpu is a 64 bit cpu, you can read here if you want to

You don't have to use a 64 bit version of siduction but why not use the one fitting best to your hardware?

Edited: I changed the link above to a more right cpu, still 64 bit
