View Full Version : [ubuntu] Get error message on 8.10 startup

December 29th, 2008, 11:22 PM
I just installed 8.10 on my laptop from a live disc. When I restarted, I got this:

Boot from (hd0,0) ext3 359c0d4d-5e95-4cc7-b93c-f97aeb39fcd2
Starting up...
[ 0.410870] ACPI: Aborted because junk in gzipped archive.
[ 2.591220] Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount (goes off screen)
root fs on unknown
What to do?

Did you install from the live CD? If so, did you verify Checksums before the install? I'm thinking you might have used a corrupt install file. One idea would be to get a fresh ISO file and re-do the install.

I do not know how to verify checksums. Should I go ahead and get a fresh ISO?

I booted from the disc, and went to check integrity. It said there were no errors. Does this mean that the disc wasn't the problem?
