HELP - Still no boot!
Still same error message (LIL-) on boot, but I've got more information now.
At the lilo prompt from a rh5.2 boot image, if I type
it boots off the default kernel and dies when trying to remount the root
I looked at my lilo.conf and it has
I changed it to boot=/dev/hda
ran lilo -r /mnt
where /mnt was my mounted root drive /dev/hda1
And I had the same problem.
A friend told me that 'lil-' means there is a problem with the map file and
you need to remake the map file or something. Another redhat 5.2 (2.0.36)
had a /boot/map of side 8192. My /boot/map file is 29184 -- could this be
the problem? my /boot/boot.b is the same size of 4536. I tried running
lilo -m /mnt/boot/newmapfile -r /mnt and
lilo -m /mnt/boot/map -r /mnt
but both times it complained about the lack of map file, or something like
that. Could the problem be my map file, and if so, how can I fix /
regenerate it? I don't have a backup map file on my hard drive.
Thank you so much!!!!!!
