I have been using linux since SLS was the best and I have never seen nor
heard of anything like this. I am using RedHat-4.1 (upgraded from
4.0 last night to see if it would fix my problem). I have a 1.2G EIDE
hard drive on /dev/hda(1) and a 1.0G Seagate SCSI on /dev/sda(1-6). My
root partition is on /dev/sda1, but lilo boot area is installed on
/dev/hda. My Seagate's SCSI ID is set to 0. I am basically using the
default lilo.conf that RedHat set up for me.
I installed RedHat (4.0) two weeks ago and everything went fine. I had
the general problems referenced in the errata, but other than that no
problems. I compiled a new kernel to get IP masquerading, and it also
worked fine for a couple of days. Now when I turn on my machine I do
not even get a lilo boot prompt it just scrolls with "01"'s as far as I
can tell forever.
I had no crashes, or anything else the last time my computer booted
correctly. I have reinstalled lilo innumerous times. I have
reinstalled RedHats stock kernel (for the Ultrastor I use). Still no
It doesn't seem like the kernel, because I am not getting the lilo boot
Has anyone seen this? If so I would REALLY appreciate any help you
could give me.
If you can respond I would appreciate it if you could e-mail me, as my
service provider does not always get all messages.
Thank you very much,
