Strange error while booting Bianca Live Cd

Post by wobblebottom » Mon Aug 13, 2007 11:53 am

So I just downloaded Bianca because I was impressed with the interface, and frankly I love the name :).

At any rate, I have an old emachines desktop, and I wiped the drive (nothing important lost) and went to install, or even load the Live Cd, and was met with the following message as soon as I decide to install the OS.

"Cannot access tty; Job control turned off"

It has given me this message in safe graphics mode as well.


What is going on?

You should not get that in Bianca - that's reserved for Cassandra :)
Due to a change in the installler that happens sometimes for Cassandra but I have not heard of it for Bianca. It could be that the hardware in your emachines box is a bit odd.
Check the troubleshooter for the live CD

You may have to use break=top instead of break=bottom - don't remember if that's mentioned

Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
