    Re: BusyBox Error.

    After countless tries to install ubuntu 8.04 I also always get the BusyBox error.
    Mine is
    "usb 1-1 : device not accepting address 2, error -71"

    Can anyone tell me what that is? I have only about 11 hairs left on my head.

    Give this a shot. It fixed my busybox problems.

    At the LiveCD initial boot screen:
    Select F6 for more options
    Add the following option to the beginning of the options list:
    break=top
    Press enter to start booting
    Ubuntu will start booting, but kick you out to a command prompt; at the prompt type these two commands:
    modprobe ata_piix
    modprobe ide_generic
    exit

    You will now boot into the LiveCD normally.
    Above worked successfully and I hope your case is working fine.

    It seems to me that this is a case-by-case issue, but I will try it and report back with my results. Thanks.

    WOW! I almost skipped over this thinking that it probably would not work. But Ubuntu now boots thanks to your help! I couldn't thank you enough for linking that info!

    Thanks man! Hopefully others who are having the same problem will see this thread as well.

    And as a sidenote: this is pretty obvious I thought, but you can boot from a hard disk with this fix as well. Just edit the boot code on the GRUB menu.

    I tried that, it only got me back to the dreaded (intramfs) and that did not accept the "modprobe" command.

    Re: [SOLVED] BusyBox Error.

    I have now come to admit that the problem with my machine is that my SATA drives are seen as IDE drives by my Bios. To correct that I have to correct the Bios, which for me is like playing soccer on a land mine field... I also found out that OpenSuse has the same problem with my Bios. So... good bye Linux. I guess LInux is only meant for people who have a machine built for Linux.
