Slackware seems to be a popular developers distro but VM Player doesn't seem to work with it. I have gone through all the steps it even does the partitions and installs the operating system completely but when I restart the virtual machine without the ISO mounted it doesn't boot the linux partition it looks for it but does not start up. Instead it returns: Operating system is missing
I'm running on a win7 x64 AMD Phenom II N620 Dual-Core Processor 2.80 GHz with 4 Gigs of RAM
The slackware distro is version 14.0 x64 edition using the kernel version 2.6 custom build from slackware called
If anyone has any ideas or suggestions on what to do to have this particular distro work properly I am all ears.
Oh correction sorry it wasn't kernel 2.6 I just assumed it was till I read the kernel name and realized it was not. My apologies.
IIRC, the error for a failed 'Automatic' install of lilo flashes right past to the next configure script while the 'Expert' or more configurable install mode presents a dialog when lilo fails to install. I'd double check it's working by re-running /sbin/lilo just before restarting.
