Linux on a LS-120 (mkbootdisk & LILO fail)

Linux on a LS-120 (mkbootdisk & LILO fail)

Post by ja.. » Sun, 31 Dec 1899 09:00:00



I've got an LS-120 on my gateway 5150 laptop.

It lives at /dev/hdc and I have the following in /etc/fstab
/dev/hdc    /mnt/ls120  auto user,exec,dev,suid,rw,noauto 1 1

I can mount either 1.44M or 120M disks, no problem.

However, I cannot make a boot disk. mkbootdisk runs, but fails at the
end. I have traced the problem to lilo, which gives the following error
message:

mknod /tmp/dev.0: No such file or directory

if I put in lots of of "-v" in the lilo run, this error happens after
the following output

[lots of "Caching device /dev/*** (0x****)]
Caching device /dev/loop7 (0x0707)
Reading boot sector from /dev/hdc
Invalidating cache entry for /dev/hda (0x0300)
mknod /tmp/dev.0: No such file or directory

Any ideas?

Thanks,

Andrew
