Errors booting 4.0 KDE from Dvd solved

Postby cr0wn3r » Wed Jan 23, 2008 7:43 am

I started my hopefully long journey in to the world of Linux last week when I set up one of my old machines with Mint 4.0.

I decided to give 4.0-KDE beta a look as well but Im having problems booting from the DVD.

After selecting from the meun either safemode or normal, the main splash screen appears, the progress bar moves a bit and then the screen goes black with this printed at the top:

init: Unable to execute "/bin/sh" for rcS: Input/output error
init: rcS main process (4893) terminatedwith status 255
init: Unable to execute "/bin/sh" for rc-default: Input/output error
init: rc-default main process (4894) terminated with satus 255


When I installed 4.0 last week I got a very similar error, if not identical, when I tried to install it from a DVD. I realised then that the download page said CD so I burnt in to a CD instead and it installed fine.

However 4.0-KDE obviously doesnt fit on a CD, so Im wondering if maybe theres something wrong with my DVD drive, or if this error has some other known meaning. Ive searched a bit on here and the wiki and not come up with any ideas.

The PC Im using has a 1.8gig athlon processor and a gig of memory.

[edit: Ive done the md5 check and thats all fine ]

It seems like a faulty DVD - did you burn slow? More than once I've missed that and ended up with a faulty CD/DVD

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

Thanks. I did another DVD burn after reading your reply and that one worked.
