Hello all,


Ive followed the installation in the handboook and have made the following.

/dev/sda1 /boot
/dev/sda2 /
3 reserved
/dev/sda4 swap

i have emerged silo and placed a silo.conf in the boot directory with
silo -C /boot/silo.conf

partition=1
root=/dev/sda2
image=/boot/kernelxxx
label = linux

it reports everything is ok.

when I reboot silo comes up, pressing tab shows the "linux" label but it says it cant find the image.
as well as some ext2 issue
Is there something im missing here

thanx

I've been fooled by this before....as I go back and forth between one MASTER partition and multiple partition with a separate boot partition.

Whenever I split my / and /boot apart, one must remember to remove the "/boot" from the image

image=/kernel-2.6.11-r2

In that case... What would be the partition value?


partition = 1 ?????
root = /dev/sda2

image =/kernelxxx
label = linux


where /boot is on dev/sda1 and / is on sda2

thanx

Since, you've merged the / and /boot partition into the same partition, it would be partition = 2
