I just can't get it to boot.

It may very well be my fault, and my sincere apologies if I horrendously misuse some jargon but I recently tried to install 64 studio 2.1 first as a partition and then as a not partition. but I keep getting the same error: /bin/sh: can't access tty: job control turned off I also can't seem to login? occasionally I'll get these warnings beforehand Check root=bootarg cat /proc/cmdline or missing modules, devices: cat /proc/modules ls /dev ALERT! /dev/sda1 does not exist. Dropping into a shell! I would list the output from the commands they suggested but for most of this I have to write it up so I don't know. if there's any more information that would be needed I would certainly offer it. I'm rather new to this sort of thing, having used linuxmint and ubuntu a bit for the past year and only for pretty basic things.

Kernel

The answer is in the kernel. We had to keep using the 2.6.21 kernel because of RT performance regression in the later kernels. A new group has been started looking just at these issues, and we are anxiously looking forward to the fruits of their labour. Lenny is also now in the final stages before the release candidate, and after the release Free and Daniel will jump into action preparing the release candidate for 64 Studio 3.0 The release blocker being the inclusion of a kernel suitable to the release. Thanks for your patience - the one thing that makes Debian one of the most stable linux distribution releases also makes it the slowest to be released. Personally I cannot wait to have a stable Lenny based 64 Studio with an updated kernel. Cheers,

I went through a few of those but figured it was updated in 2.1. sorry. I'm looking forward to running 64 though, even through these complications which have really slowed me down :)

sounds like one of the classic SATA problems. There are a couple of threads dealing with this issue: http://www.64studio.com/search/node/sata
