Lilo error codes?

Post by David Lot » Sat, 27 Jul 1996 04:00:00

Lilo tries to load
Prints an "L"
Follows it with 010101010....

Loadlin works great

I have a 486/66, 32Meg, Adaptec 1542, Cirrus Logic SVGA w/ 1Meg
1.2 Gig SCSI as /dev/sda
        /dev/sda1       VFAT Windows 95 (location of LILO in MBR)
        /dev/sda5       VFAT
640 Meg SCSI as /dev/sdb
        /dev/sdb1       Linux Native
        /dev/sdb2       Linux Swap
CD-ROM SCSI as /dev/cdrom

RedHat 3.0.3 upgraded to v2.0

I have currently backed off LILO by DOS command fdisk /MBR, but would
like to get LILO working.

Can someone tell me what LILO is trying to say by painting the screen
with 1's and 0's?

The network works. No excuses


1. where are LILO error codes documented?

Sorry I can't be specific, but I spent a great deal of time looking for
this kind of information myself.  I think I finally had to download the
LILO source code package in order to get the user's manual.

Good luck,
