Recently, we tried to boot our customized Puppy live linux from pen drive in our Intel 201GLY Mini-ITX board. But we gor the error:: /bin/sh: Can’t access tty; job control turned off
For the last one month we cant solved this problem. Now we solved this problem .
The solution is, just boot the kernel with the option, “acpi=off”.
The following steps will provide you more details,

  1. Boot your computer so that GRUB is displayed.
  2. Press the “e” key to go into edit mode.
  3. Presso” to add a new line to the script.
  4. Type the following: acpi=off irqpoll
  5. Press the Escape key.

In the event that acpi=off doesn’t work try replacing the entry above with one of the following:

  • acpi=force irqpoll
  • nacpitimer irqpoll

Hope this info helpful for the people those who are seeking the solution for this problem.
