I am new to Linux in general and the Arch version in particular. I
tried to install the Arch Port (2010-07-23_archppc-ftp.iso) via my CD
Drive (Pioneer DVD-RW DVR-118L) and got the following result:
:: scanning for boot cdrom device
Failed to mount /dev/cd/*
Failed to mount /dev/cdrom
Failed to mount /dev/hd*
Failed to mount /dev/sda
Failed to mount /dev/sv*
Cannot find booted cdrom.dev
kernal panic - not syncing: attempted to kill init!
which I could not finish copying before the system rebooted.
The system is an upgraded PowerPC G4 Quicksilver (dual 1.73 GHz
MPC-7448's replaced the dual 800 MHz MPC-7455's) w/ 1GB RAM, 2 80 GB
internal hard drives,2 1TB external Firewire drives (one used as a
boot drive), an ATI Radeon PCi graphics card w/ 1 display, and an ATI
Radeon 9800 Pro graphics card w/ 2 displays.
While trying to boot, the verbage appears on one display, then
switches to the other, then returns to original display to fail. I
assume some where a log file is created and I wonder where that log
file is along with some help in understanding what is going wrong.
