Hello,


I just finished a lengthy install on a Sunfire v100 from Stage 1.

I installed the SILO bootloadre as per the docs. Now when I reboot and remove the install CD, I get...

Code:

Sun Fire V100 (UltraSPARC-IIe 548MHz), No Keyboard
OpenBoot 4.0, 1024 MB memory installed, Serial #59084099.
Ethernet address 0:3:ba:85:8d:43, Host ID: 83858d43.

Executing last command: boot
Boot device: disk  File and args:
The file just loaded does not appear to be executable.
Boot device: disk  File and args:
The file just loaded does not appear to be executable.
ok


My partition is like this:
Code:

/dev/hda1 /boot
/dev/hda2 swap
/dev/hda3 whole disk
/dev/hda4 /usr
/dev/hda5 /var
/dev/hda6 /


My silo.conf is:
Code:

# Example of how can be silo.conf set up
partition = 1
root = /dev/hda1
timeout = 150
#password = __put_your_password_in_cleartext_here__
#restricted
image = /boot/kernel-2.4.28
label = linux


Any ideas?

I don't know anything about SILO, but I know that with grub, whatever you define as your 'root=', is considered '/' throughout the rest of your config file.

IE: Where it says kernel=/boot/kernel...

It may actually be trying to load /boot/boot/kernel...
since /dev/hda1 is defined as your root (And your /dev/hda1 is /boot)

Just a thought, again, I've never used SILO.

Shouldn't the root entry read
Code:
root=/dev/hda6

After you alter /etc/silo.conf you then have to run silo.

/sbin/silo me thinks. Then reboot.

If your silo config file is in /boot then
Code:
/sbin/silo -C /boot/silo.conf

or if it is in /etc
Code:
/sbin/silo -C /etc/silo.conf
