PostPosted: Tue Nov 26, 2002 3:17 am    Post subject: silo/bootloader problems Reply with quote

i installed silo but i made a type-o in the config so it can't find the kernel...now i can't figure out how to boot from the cdrom to get into rescue mode and repair the problem

is there a way to custom modify where the kernel is from the silo boot prompt

is there a way to bypass the silo and just boot from the cdrom?

help??

I'm also having trouble where silo can't find the kernel. Could somebody post their silo so I can see where I went wrong?

Code:
root = /dev/hda2
timeout = 50

image[sun4u] = /boot/vmlinuz-2420
        label = linux
        append="idebus=66"

image[sun4u] = /boot/vmlinuz-2420rc4
        label = linux2024rc4
        append="idebus=66"

image[sun4u] = /boot/vmlinuz-2420rc2
        label = linux2420rc2
        append="idebus=66"

image[sun4u] = /boot/vmlinuz-2420rc1
        label = linux2420rc1
        append="idebus=66"

image[sun4u] = /boot/vmlinuz-2420p9
        label = linux2420p9
        append="idebus=66"

image[sun4u] = /boot/vmlinuz-2419
        label = linux2419
        append="idebus=66"


Never hurts to keep around old kernels....never know when you need a backup....

Got it working. I just let it use tmpfs- made sure ramdisk support was in the kernel and uncommented the line for tmpfs is fstab.
