Description Ray Curtis 1999-03-23 19:14:29 UTC
Got my copy of starbuck this morning for a i386 and did a install on a machine: PPro 200 128M Ram 2-scsi 1-ide <-- starbuck cdrom-scsi Everything went great this time, using a scsi cdrom and installing to a IDE drive, with one exception, everytime it got to a menu where it listed the scsi drives it listed them as: /dev/^A^A^A^A^A and when I got to the section where it formatted the swap partitions, of which I had three, and only wanted and selected the the hda swap partition it went ahead and formated the scsi swap anyway and when it got to the hda swap it crashed. I got past this by just bypassing the creating swap partition window, since this partition was already formatted as swap anyway. I looked at the consoles but so no real error messages to relate to these problems. The scsi drives have other versions of redhat and debian installed. Just wanted to list my experiences with this particular beta.
