Please help with Linux Installaton (Mega Man Tutorial)

Post by isles487 »

Thanks in advance to anyone who can help. I have a fat PS2, and am trying to install BlackRhino to the hard drive (not USB), as per the tutorial, and I'm failing at the first step after bash has been loaded. I can't partition my hard drive! I use
fdisk /dev/ide/host0/bus0/target0/lun0/disc

and the message I get back is:
Device contains neither a valid DOS partition table, nor Sun, SGI, or OSF disklabel. Building a new DOS disklabel. Changes will remain in memory only, until you decide to write them. After that, of course, the previous content won't be recoverable.

Internal Error

..and Fdisk kicks me right back to the prompt. Trying again just yields the exact same thing. I am using initrd and the vmlinux with devFS as per the tutorial. Any help is appreciated in advance.

It should be noted the hard drive works, as I tried using HDLoader to install/play a game just to be sure. The HDD was also formatted with HDLoader.

try ps2fdisk

I don't know why the crash and "internal error", but you can try ps2fdisk: ... k_0.9-3.gz

I used "ps2fdisk /dev/hda" I think so usage is similar, but not the same.

Why the heck are 1001 threads about PS2 Linux? Why don't you stick to the original Megaman's thread and put your questions there?
