I tried to boot CD on a IBM TP600E Laptop. It load the kernel, then rescue.gz,
next it indicated ready, and finally when it tried to uncompress Linux... i
got "invalid compressed format (err=2)", "-- System halted"
The same CD is running on a Toshiba 440CDT.
Same thing happened to me a Thinkpad 600 Laptop, running the 1.2 CD
Does it still happen with the 1.4_rc1 iso?
Please try the latest experimental livecd
(http://www.gentoo.org/dyn/experimental/livecd/) and grab the 2002122100
version. See if it helps any. You may also want to see if there is a BIOS
upgrade available for your laptop (just in case this is an IBM issue)
lilian, is this still an issue with the newer CDs?
well, need more info from end-user. closing.
Ignore me <<< We are having Bugzilla database issues.
Moving these so we can remove the "Install CD" component from "Gentoo Linux".
I apologize to everyone for this spam, but according to the bugzilla developers,
this is the only reasonable way to do this.
