View Full Version : Slax on Ipod Shuffle

I hate using windows when I use computers at other places, so I thought maybe I could bring a different operating system with me. Slax (http://slax.org/) Seemed like a good option. So I downloaded slax for usb, and extracted the archive to my Ipod shuffle, and ran bootinst.sh from the /boot directory, but this is what I got:

Setting up boot record for /dev/sdb...
/dev/sdb: only 512-byte sectors are supported
Any idea why this happened? Is it something to do with the amount of space on my Ipod?

(Sorry if this is the wrong thread, I was thinking it might go in "Installation and Upgrades," but it said only Ubuntu/Kubuntu/Edubuntu/etc.)

I recommend asking in the Slax forum, seeing as it is a completely different distro than Ubuntu.

Happy surfin'!

This is an ubuntu forum, you might want to ask slax questions at their forum.
