Howdy all. I just finished getting a stage 1 gentoo installation on a Sparc 5 (despite the documentation). However, I'm having problems with SILO. My /, /var, /usr/ and /home partitions are all reiserfs filesystems. /boot and /tmp are both /ext2. SILO apparently can only see the ext2 filesystems. So, it can't find the /etc/silo.conf.

I can still boot by doing a
1/vmlinuz-2.4.18 root=/dev/hda2

But I'm hoping there's a way to get SILO to see my /vmlinuz symlink and my /etc/silo.conf

Thanks!

Try placing silo.conf in /boot and running:

silo -c /boot/silo.conf

Thanks for the advice. Turns out that SILO can't deal with resiserfs or xfs (or much more than ext2/3, iso9660).

Moving my silo.conf to /boot and then running
silo -C /boot/silo.conf did the trick.

Hooo ah!
