    I would like to test zeroshell on a Compaq presario 5176 (AMD K6 400MHz + 320Mo +2Go Hard drive)

    I don’t manage to run it correctly
    I have this message at the end and then nothing append:
    “Freeing unused kernel memory: 212k freed”

    I boot from a CD or a Hard drive and it is always the same problem.

    I boot now from a Harddrive I made with dd and this image
    ZeroShell-1.0.beta4-CompactFlash512.img

    Do you have any idea for helpping me ?

    Have you tried to start the system in verbose mode from the startup menu or without ACPI?

    Yes , I tried many things.verbose mode and without ACPI and there is always this last message :Freeing unused kernel but nothing happen then.
    What does that message mean ??
    I checked my hard drive is good on an other mother board and it work.

    In the next release I am going to uptade the init binary with one newer.
    At the moment the only thing you could do to run Zeroshell, is to change your hardware.

    I am attempting to boot the 1.0.beta12 CompactFlash image from a CompactFlash card and I am seeing the same thing as the person who started this thread… in verbose mode the boot script generates these messages

    Loading root filesystem into RAM device... Success
    loop: module loaded
    VFS: Mounted root (ext2 filesystem) readonly.
    Trying to move old root to /initrd ... okay
    Freeing unused kernel memory: 260k freed

    and then freezes (and the same happens even if I pass acpi=off to the kernel via the grub bootloader). Might anyone help me understand what this means or what other options I might try so that Zeroshell boots? Thanks!
