Similar to another user in another topic, I too am trying to get Slitaz working on an OLD laptop (specifically, it's a Sharp PC-3040) with 24MB RAM and a 100MHz Pentium processor. As a curiosity, I'm wondering whether I can make it work as a comamnd-line MPD server.
Anyway, pretty much any of the standard installation options seem to be out. Floppy is my only real boot option with it, and I wasn't able to get it to start successfully with the loram base floppy set, nor did floppy-grub4dos work (I was getting a BIOS error with that; I think it was trying to make a memory call that my hardware didn't support).
So I decided to give booting with Tiny Slitaz a try (thinking that I could try the manual install). It did indeed boot, but it couldn't recognize my hard drive. Figuring I might need a custom kernel that included support for my laptop's drive controller (Intel MPIIX) among other things, I set Slitaz up on a virtual machine on my desktop, and started going through the steps to build a custom kernel.
Once I went through menuconfig to my satisfaction, I built it, and tried to load the resulting bzImage (1.1MB) as my custom kernel at tiny.slitaz.org. But when I got to the download screen, the floppy image and the kernel download were both empty (zero-length files). Is there anything obvious that I'm doing wrong here? Is there anything specific that tiny.slitaz.org is looking for in a custom kernel that I may have neglected? If those questions seem a little broad, is there any place I might be able to find the .config files for the "official" Tiny kernels to use for comparison, to get an idea of where I might be going wrong?
If I need to supply more information (entirely likely), please let me know.
