lilo error message
i tried to load lilo into my MBR and get the following message:
Warning: '/proc/partitions' does not match '/dev' directory structure.
The kernel was compiled with DEVFS_FS, but 'devfs=mount' was
omitted as a kernel command-line boot parameter; hence,
the '/dev' directory structure does not reflect DEVFS_FS
lilo was then correctly written into the MBR and linux does boot. but what does this message mean?
thx 4 posting in advance
Can you post your /etc/lilo.conf file here using the "code" buttons located on this page?
It probably means that /proc/partitions uses the devfs device names. I don't know for sure, but I'd guess so.
in your lilo.conf file, there will be an append="" line for each entry
add devfs=mount inside the "" for each entry
