Booting ZipSlack from USB 128mb flash
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 5, 2004
I'm currently trying to use ZipSlack before I can install Slack. To boot ZipSlack, I would have to use MS-DOS startup disk and then go to my D: drive and run linux.bat.
Now I have an idea, I have a USB thumbdrive 128megs and since I can boot this USB drive, is there any way I can create a bootloader on the thumb drive so that I can start my ZipSlack on my D drive (w/o plugging my usb FDD everytime I wanna get into ZipSlack.)
ZipSlack on USB driveNeed a USBenabled floppy?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: November 15, 2004
I run Slackware 9.1 at home. I'm at school and need to write a program for the administrative staff. I'd like to write it in Linux, so I put ZipSlack on a 128MB USB drive and have tried multiple floppy boot-images to work with it. They all result in a kernel panic, even if I specify to use /dev/sda1 (which is the device that the USB drive mounts at, as I managed to see in one of the floppies (a Knoppix-based floppy)).
I need a floppy boot-image that can mount a USB drive as the root filesystem.
Also, RUNT was not the answer here.
USB keyboard in zipslack

HiYa, I just downloaded a copy of zipslack to play with untill a freand of mine can get me a copy os SuSe, but I ran into a little problem. My USB keyboard wont work. I get to the login screen and am forced to reboot. Now I just wanted to know how to get my keyboard working and if it would be possible to do this threw DOS or Windows.
PS. I'm running on a HP Pavillian PC and have Kernel 2.4.14 (I think)
Trying to install zipslack on a usb drive
location: linuxquestions.com - date: October 15, 2006
I know this sort of question has come up before, but I haven't found any threads that answer my questions. I have a 1 GB USB pen drive and I want to install zipslack on it, and boot from the USB drive. I'm not sure how I can make my USB drive boot up zipslack. My bios has several USB devices that I can boot from (USB fdd, USB hdd, and a couple others that I can't remember), but I've never booted off of a USB device so I don't know if it will work. I tried running
Zipslack with usb Zipdrive cannot boot
location: linuxquestions.com - date: September 26, 2004
I am new for linux. I design to try Zipslack first by using Iomega Zip drive (I have only USB port).
After I type : loadlin vmlinuz root=/dev/sda4 rw
!!Kernel Panic!! and cannot mount the root. I try to change many numbers but it is not work anymore. I also scroll back and use the name linux called, hda5, but also "Kernel Panic" happened.
The kernel that I use is 2.2.7. and I think that usb 2.0 is the SBP support which it can use SCSI emulation.
Anybody has an Idea about this problem ?
Thanks in advance for any kind help.
USB Keyboard and Mouse not working with BeagleboardxM
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: September 17, 2011
I tried installing Ubuntu Natty and Oneiric Beta 1 on a SD Card for using it with a BeagleBoard-xM Rev. C, following these instructions: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/ARM/OmapNetbook
(For Oneiric i did not update the kernel like the instructions tells for Natty)
These are the images i used:
For both images i had the same problem of the USB keyboard and mouse not working.
With the original Ångström Linux, which was shipped preinstalled on a SD Card, mouse and keyboard was working nicely, though.
I have not found anything usefull when searchig for this on the internet. Other people seem not to have this problem.
I would like to give you a nice bootlog but unfortunately the output on the serial port stops after the booting of the kernel starts (see below) while the screen shows the booting continuing.
(The original Ångström Linux gives a proper bootlog.)
How to mount android tablet as a USB device
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 24, 2011
I have an Acer Iconia Tab A500 and the instruction manual said to use it as a USB drive I would just have to plug it in. Unfortunately, Ubuntu does not automatically do some steps that Windows/Mac apparently do, so, long story short, it did not show up in Nautilus and I did not know how to mount it manually. The process to do so was a bit convoluted, but I found it in the first post of this thread:
The only modification to those steps that I needed was to NOT enable "USB debugging" on the tablet. When "USB debugging" was enabled Ubuntu gave a "Transport endpoint not connected" error. The instructions in that link are for Acer Iconia and Motorola Xoom tablets but there is a good chance they are applicable to other Android tablets or phones. If you have to modify the instructions to get yours to work, please post them here so that other people with the same device as you will know what to modify as
