LILO Is Not Working... *SOLVED*
Just now, I updated my kernel to gentoo-source-2.6.11-r11. I ran make install, as usual. When it tried to re-install LILO, I received an error:
Should I run /sbin/lilo? (y/N) y Warning: The boot sector and map file are on different disks. Added Gentoo-2611-r9 * Added Gentoo-2611-r8 Added Gentoo-2611-r6 Fatal: First sector of /dev/hda1 doesn't have a valid boot signature There was a problem running /sbin/lilo. Checking for SILO...No Checking for PALO...No Should I make a bootdisk? (y/N) n WARNING: Your system is probably unbootable now. After correcting any problems, rerun this script with the command `mkboot -installkernel'. make: *** [install] Error 1 make: *** [install] Error 2
My main system is on hdb, by the way.
Now then, I next tried making a small, 100 MB partition (as an ext2) and ensuring that its boot flag was set. Here is my output from "fdisk -l":
Disk /dev/hda: 60.0 GB, 60000000000 bytes 255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 7294 cylinders Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System /dev/hda1 * 1 1 8001 83 Linux /dev/hda2 2 7294 58581022+ 83 Linux Disk /dev/hdb: 160.0 GB, 160041885696 bytes 255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 19457 cylinders Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System /dev/hdb1 1 1217 9775521 b W95 FAT32 /dev/hdb2 * 1218 1222 40162+ 83 Linux /dev/hdb3 1223 1466 1959930 82 Linux swap / Solaris /dev/hdb4 1467 19457 144512707+ 83 Linux
Could you post your lilo.conf file? And the output ofCode:
df -hTThere are two major products that come out of Berkeley: LSD and UNIX. We don't believe this to be a coincidence.

I'm officially retarded...
The problem was that I had left my Windows partition in my lilo.conf . After removed that section, all is well.
