vector, xp &suse11 multiboot problem(solved, sorta)
« on: November 07, 2008, 12:42:34 am »

Hi All, I have been playing with my computer again. I have 2 hd, master has xp and vector on it, slave has suse on it. my problem is lilo doesn't load the correct kernel for suse. Anyone know where lilo picks up the kernel from. thanks for any help. Heres my lilo.conf
# LILO configuration file
# generated by 'liloconfig'
#
# Start LILO global section
boot = /dev/hda
default = linux
compact
prompt
timeout = 100
# Override dangerous defaults that rewrite the partition table:
change-rules
  reset
bitmap = /boot/bitmap/boot.bmp
# Normal VGA console
vga = normal
# VESA framebuffer console @ 1024x768x64k
# vga=791
# VESA framebuffer console @ 1024x768x32k
# vga=790
# VESA framebuffer console @ 1024x768x256
# vga=773
# VESA framebuffer console @ 800x600x64k
# vga=788
# VESA framebuffer console @ 800x600x32k
# vga=787
# VESA framebuffer console @ 800x600x256
# vga=771
# VESA framebuffer console @ 640x480x64k
# vga=785
# VESA framebuffer console @ 640x480x32k
# vga=784
# VESA framebuffer console @ 640x480x256
# vga=769


# End LILO global section
# Partition 1 : DOS/Windows
other = /dev/hda1
    label = Win
    table = /dev/hda
# Partition 2: Linux GUI mode
image = /boot/vmlinuz
    root = /dev/hda2
    label = linux
    append = " "
    read-only
   
# Partition 3: Linux TUI mode
image = /boot/vmlinuz
    root = /dev/hda2
    label = linux-tui
    append = "2  "
    read-only
   
# Partition 4: Linux
image = /boot/vmlinuz
    root = /dev/hdb1
    label = suse-hdb1
    read-only
   
What happened is I gave up on suse-sucks and I am now using PCLOS on my 2nd hard drive, pretty cool distro but not as fast as vl

When you run vliloconf, it usually copies the kernels and initrds of other linuxes to /boot/tamu

The Partition 4 stanza is telling lilo to look in /dev/hda for the suse image. You need to change "/boot/vmlinuz" in Stanza 4 to /dev/hdb1/boot/vmlinuz (or wherever that suse image actually is) and then rerun lilo as root with the command "lilo -v"
