View Full Version : [other] No root filesystem defined (even when it is)

December 21st, 2008, 10:11 AM
When I first try to set a root file system it comes up with a box that is just full of question marks. After that, if I try to set the root partition is says "no root partition defined please correct this using...." Even though I am trying to set it, I think it's not changing the settings, and just trying to continue. This is a live CD from a book (Hacking: The Art of Exploitation). It's Ubuntu 7.04 on an AMD X2 64bit processor. Any help would be appreciated.

I did get it to work in VMWare, so I'm thinking it's hardware related?

Ubuntu 7.04 has reached its end of life you would be better of to download a later version either intrepid (http://releases.ubuntu.com/intrepid/) (lastest) or the long term support version, hardy (http://releases.ubuntu.com/hardy/) and install it.

I have 8.04 already. I want it because the CD came with the book, meaning it is setup exactly how the book needs it to be. I don't want to chase down all the obscure deps. and such, and copy the files that I need from the install CD.
