  1. Hmm.. I can't get this to boot. It says something with "Failed to boot second step". Will continue to try to fix the problem.
  2. Is noone able to help me? "/ The "Your trk folder is not on root" is not really my problem, cause when I write "sdb4" after it fails searching for it, it starts up with no problem. The problem I got is that the "vollabel=" is not working. Even when I got the trk folder on root of sdb1, I still need to specify the location manually. I've tried different labels, to see if it has problems reading the underscores, etc, but that's not the case either. It's not really THAT much of a problem, but kinda bugs me =P
  3. I actually have it on SDB4. An own partition, with the label TRK_3-3, and at the root of that partition, ofcourse. But isn't there a way to extract the initrd.trk, to edit a script the same way that's doable with BT4? Been searching around, but haven't found anything yet..
  4. I've managed to make BT4 Persistent on a multipass. It's really simple! Just add BT4 normally like you've done with the other programs. Create a small partition on the USB that you call casper-rw. This is how my menu.lst/btmenu.lst looks like: color green/black black/green timeout 120 title -=BackTrack 4 Pre-release=- configfile /boot/bootbt4/boot/grub/menu.lst --------------------------------------------------------------- color green/black black/green timeout 120 default 3 title -=Start BackTrack FrameBuffer (1024x768)=- root (hd0,0) kern
  5. Hi! I can't seem to get the vollabel="vollabel" to work. I still have to input sdb3 in my case manually. My menu.lst/submenu.lst looks like this: title -=Trinity Rescue Kit=- configfile /boot/boottrk/trkmenu.lst / title -=TRK 3.3 Default=- kernel /boot/boottrk/kernel.trk ramdisk_size=49152 root=/dev/ram0 vollabel=TRK_3-3 vga=788 splash=verbose pci=conf1 keyb_no initrd /boot/boottrk/initrd.trk And I got the trk3 folder on an own partition with the label TRK_3-3 Anyone knows what I've done wrong? Thanks in advance =)
  6. Nevermind, got it working now! And with persistent aswell!! =D=D Oh, boy. I'm happy right now =D
  7. I'm trying to do it all over again, but when I do the "gunzip /home/earbleed/Desktop/bt4-pre-final.iso /home/earbleed/Desktop/mountbt4/boot/initrd.gz | cpio -i", I get: gzip: /home/earbleed/Desktop/mountbt4/boot/initrd: Read-only file system cpio: Premature end of archive I've doublechecked both the attributes(which is rw), and the md5sum of the ISO, and everything is ok.
  8. Thanks for the tip, Strocknar. But somehow, I can't make it work. I get "cpio: premature end of archive" when I do the "gunzip initrd.gz | cpio -i" But still, I can edit the casper-file and repackage it like you wrote in the guide. Could this be the reason why I'm having problems? This should work for all "casper on root"-reliable programs, right? This is my menu-entry: title -=BackTrack 4 Pre-release=- root (hd0,0) kernel /boot/bootbt4/vmlinuz ramdisk_size=6666 casperpath=/boot/bootbt4/casper root=/dev/ram0 rw initrd=/boot/bootbt4/initrd.gz boot I get the error that it
