    Triboot promblems Suse 10.2 FC7 & XP


    Im trying to try boot using Suse grub, Suse and xp work. The fedora 7 install is still there but I cant find the fc7 kernel. I installed XP than fedora than suse. I didnt install fedora 7 with volgroups. I just used a /boot and / directories. In the boot dir I can look in I only find the suse kernel -suse xen kernel and cant find the FC7 kernel or the fc7 xen kernel.

    Hi and Welcome !

    check in boot folder under / (root) of Fedora. check the contents of Fedora's /etc/fstab file too.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    you have to mount Fedora's / partition in SuSe. post the output of fdisk -l and df -h commands. you must have root privileges to execute fdisk command.

    mount sda2 and sda3 partitions. these probably /boot and / partitions of Fedora.
    Code:
    cd /media
    mkdir sda2 sda3
    mount -t ext3  /dev/sda2  /media/sda2
    mount -t ext3  /dev/sda3  /media/sda3
    check in /media/sda2 and sda3 folders. post the contents of /etc/fstab file in sda2/sda3 and check if there is any grub.conf file in /boot/grub folder of sda2/3.

    copy first title block ( title, root, kernel and initrd lines ) from grub.conf file and paste in /boot/grub/menu.lst file of SuSe.

    /etc/fstab file must be in /sda3. Did you check in /media/sda3/etc folder? and yes, vmlinuz is the kernel.

    LABEL=/ / ext3 defaults 1 1
    LABEL=/boot /boot ext3 defaults 1 2
    tmpfs /dev/shm tmpfs defaults 0 0
    devpts /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
    sysfs /sys sysfs defaults 0 0
    proc /proc proc defaults 0 0

    Copied everything to the menu list file. will the partions stay mounted?
