    Question Puppy linux & lilo


    Hallo,on a acer tm 513 (celeron,64ram) I have installed puppy FULL but grub freeze my keyboard (it make the same with other distro)
    Therefore I installed delilinux /dev/hda1 which is using lilo and installed puppy on a different partition /dev/hda3 mounted on /mnt

    I have copied initrd.gz in the /boot folder of hda3 where there is also vmlinuz and folder /grub ( installed on /root)

    Edited lilo.conf to add Puppy as follows:

    image = /mnt/boot/vmlinuz
    root = /dev/hda3
    label = Puppy
    read-only

    Whel lilo starts and select Puppy I get the following message:
    Kernel-panic-not syncing :VFS Unable to mount root fs on unhnown-block (3,3)

    I think I did not copy kernel in /boot but I did not find it in the cdrom-live
    How can I copy it?

    Thank for help

    I don't know if this might be what you are looking for. I don't run Puppy. Anyways When I need to find current kernel version I open a Terminal and type and enter

    uname -r

    You should be able to copy and paste the readout to edit /boot, Like I said, I don't know for sure if that is what you need.
