I have been trying to get GRUB to load linux all night, it can see the file is there, but gives me Error 15: File not found
I did the autoconfigure in YAST with the same result.
(SUSE 9.1, dual boot with Windows XP, I figured out the Windows one before the Linux that was giving me all kinds of errors)
example loading GRUB to the command line:
grub> root (hd0, 5)
Filesystem type is reiserfs, partition type 0x83
grub> kernel /boot/vmlinux root=/dev/hda6
Error 15: File not found
I found out that you can get it to list the possible files hitting tab, so I get:
grub> kernel (hd0,5)/boot/ <<tab>>
Possible Files are: boot grub message backup_mbr initrd.suse vmlinuz.suse
so I try it with all possible combinations of the root=/dev/hda6 and kernel (hd0,5)/boot/vmlinux.suse etc. and cannot seem to get it to boot
I can boot via the SUSE boot disc, start an installation, and then choose the /dev/hda6 to boot and it launched right into it. My only thinking now is that vmlinuz.suse is a pointer to something that isn't there.
