    /proc/partitions?


    I'm installing gentoo on my Athalon 1 GHz computer dual booting with windows and dos. I couldn't understand the grub setup, so I installed lilo, which worked fine except for a warning whenever I run lilo after altering the lilo.conf file

    Warning: '/proc/partitions' does not exist, disk scan bypassed

    should I have a file /proc/partitions? what should it contain?

    so long as you have /proc setup properly (ie: created from reading the installation manual from gentoo.org), it should contain something like this:

    mercury: ~> cat /proc/partitions
    major minor #blocks name

    3 0 4209408 hda
    3 1 497983 hda1
    3 2 96390 hda2
    3 3 3614625 hda3
    22 0 4209408 hdc
    22 1 498078 hdc1
    22 2 97524 hdc2
    22 3 3613774 hdc3

    hda and hdc are hard drives on this particular machine.
