    What are the contents of the /gentoo-root/boot directory?

    Posted them allready,


    scourge boot # ls
    boot vmlinux


    remember?

    (Or do I remember wrong and didn't post it hmm)
    Anyway.

    Flatline, and yes.

    I know what needs to be told to lilo / grub them to boot correctly.

    But the problem was more like "how" I put it there.

    Some dude sayd that lilo doens't know how to boot from another disk, and he putted his slackware kernel image to Gentoos /boot dir and worked fine..

    Maybe I should try that..

    Sorry. So you should just need to give your lilo.conf file the path to the kernel image...

    Code:
    # Gentoo
    
    image = /gentoo-root/boot/vmlinux
    root = /dev/hdc3
    label = Gentoo
    read-only
    Incidentally, that /boot directory shows something named boot...is that a directory or a file? If it's a directory, could you post the contents?

    You did post trhem before, you should add a stanza line this to your lilo.conf:
    Code:
    image=/boot/vmliunx
    root = /dev/hdc3
    label = Gentoo

    It is always a good policy to be neat with one's fstab Fatline;
    I agree, but I was just saying he could fix that later (I tend to be a "one thing at a time" kinda guy.

    By the way, there's no need to call me fatline; I'm sensitive about my weight

    I'm not really sure what it is.

    I looked in there long time a go before u came in to help me.

    But anyway, it doesn't lead anywhere. Except back.

    Dunno.

    Anyway,

    I tryed this:

    root@scourge:/boot# cp /gentoo-root/boot/vmlinux /boot/
    root@scourge:/boot# mv vmlinux vmlinux-gentoo

    and then mobifyed lilo.conf

    image = /boot/vmlinux-gentoo
    root = /dev/hdc3
    label = Gentoo
    read-only

    then run lilo:

    root@scourge:/boot# lilo

    Fatal: Setup length exceeds 31 maximum; kernel setup will overwrite boot loader


    Wtf?

    Why don't you give the setup I gave you a shot and see if it works?

    Once you have edited your lilo.conf you must run as root
    Code:
    /sbin/lilo
    THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT!

    Try

    image = /gentoo-root/boot/vmlinux
    root = /dev/hdc3
    label = Gentoo
    read-only
