LILO configuration in Slackware
Due to some discussions about Arch linux with other distros, I just decided to give a try with Arch to see what are all the things it has. And more over I installed Ubuntu too .
I tried to configure the lilo but I can not able to do that. Currently Ubuntu boot loader is in MBR. And it list all the OS that I have. But, I want the lilo to be in MBR. Here are my sda details,
sda1 - Windows 7
sda10 - Slackware
sda14 - Ubuntu
sda15- Fedora - [ / - partition ]
sda16 - Fedora
In LILO , currently I have
image = /boot/vmlinuz
root = /dev/sda10
label = Slackware
other = /dev/sda1
label = Please_DO_NOT_CHOOSE
table = /dev/sda
To configure Fedora15 in lilo i added,
root = /dev/sda15
label = Fedora_Love_Lock
And for Arch,
root = /dev/sda13
label = Arch_Linux
when tried to install lilo, I got
I tried with giving absolute path,
and I got
If I comment the Fedora config then I get the same error for Arch linux too.
How can I configure all 5 OS in lilo.
