    running Vector in Slackware's LILO


    guys, hope somebody could help me: i have chosen to INSTALL vector's LILO in the sector (not MBR, bcause i want to use my slackware's LILO in loading vector) NOW, after i have chosen to install vector on /dev/hdc12 (this is the name of my ROOT drive of vector) the message was : successfully installed . . .so i edited my lilo.conf in slack adding :

    other = /dev/hdc12
    label = vector linux


    but after saving and rebooting my PC, I STILL CANNOT SEE THE LABEL OF vector in my LILO...

    have i missed something?

    Vector uses the 2.6 kernel, yes? Then you need to point to the initrd in the very same way the initrd is pointed to in Slackware. Check /etc/lilo.conf. After making the necessary changes, run:
    Code:
    lilo
    as root.
