Hi. I'm a bit of a linux newbie. Only been playing around with ubuntu for a year or so now and decided, after much trouble on account of getting the rt kernel to work with their studio remix and pulseaudio, I decided to try 64Studio. Took me quite a while to get it actually installed as my internet access has been limited until recently but, I finally got past the tetex-bin error....only to recieve another once I set up my bootlist. My current error, which prevents me from booting up 64 studio is as follows: All things seem happy until... "Warning: missing mdadm.conf file, trying to create one... Success: mdadm.conf created Begin: Assembling all MD arrays ... Failure: failed to assemble all arrays. Done. " Then it hangs for a while before spewing out a bit about cardreaders that seems fine and then this: " Check root= bootarg cat /proc/cmdline or missing modules, devices: cat /proc/modules ls /dev ALERT! does not exist. Dropping to a shell! " Then it drops to BusyBox shell. Any thoughts? I have a working ubuntu 9.04 install on the same machine so any logs, etc, that could be of use are available. I really want to get this boot working so that I can go about recording without windows (which has been giving me no end of trouble for a while now). Thanks, -Nick
