OK, for those trying to make Gentoo CDs from the issue 72 DVD, and having trouble booting, I've figured out what's wrong and found a quick solution!
The .tmp.iso install disc made by Jigdo needs to be made bootable -- that's what's wrong. To do this, copy the files from that ISO image to a new directory (by loopback mounting it), and then make a new ISO from that directory just created. Here's what to enter (you'll need to be root; enter 'su' and the password in a terminal window):
- Code: Select all
# mv install-x86-universal-2005.1.iso.tmp install-x86-universal-2005.1.iso
# mkdir /loop && mount -o loop install-x86-universal-2005.1.iso /loop
# mkdir /new && cp -R /loop/* /new && umount /loop
# mkisofs -rdlJ -b isolinux/isolinux.bin -c isolinux/boot.cat -no-emul-boot -boot-load-size 4 -boot-info-table -o install-fixed.iso /new
Now you'll have a file called 'install-fixed.iso
' -- burn that to disc and you can start the Gentoo installation! I'll put this fix in the coverdisc pages of the next issue, and apologies for the glitch. Rest assured, I'll be running TekWM for the rest of the month as punishment...
