Unable to create a Alpine linux virtal machine using vmware player 3
I wanted to create an Alpine Linux VM for using in my class project, EEL 5718 in university of florida (taken by Dr. Haniph Latchman).
I followed the steps mentioned at http://wiki.alpinelinux.org/w/index.php?title=Installing\_Alpine\_on\_a\_virtual\_machine. The VM boots up from the CD (which is the .iso file downloaded), but gets hanged. The screen shows “boot:” and then does’nt move forward with the booting process. I am using the latest version (1.9.3 for x86). I tried this on a windows vista host and ubuntu 9.10 host and got the same result.
