LILO fix failure
Recently I tried to fix a 15-years-old pc by installing on it DSL.It's first OS was windows98 and i deleted it in order to take full advantage of the disk space(2.5 Gb!).For the installation I followed this:http://www.damnsmalllinux.org/wiki/i...hard_disk.html.
I created a swap partition(hdc1:500MB)and the bootable partition(hdc2:2GB).Everything was fine and i choosed to have LILO as boot loader.
But when I restarted i got the "L 99.." error.After a little google search I tried editing lilo.conf and run lilo install again,through dsl live cd.
Now I have to deal with this error:
When run "chroot /mnt/hdc2" and I'm typing from "root@box" I get the error:
I found a thread with the same error here:http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...ooting-359458/But it gives no certain answer to the problem.
So how can I reconfigure lilo when I'm root but still have "access denied errors"????
EDIT:partially resolved.It was because of nodev that i couldn't edit lilo.
The solution was:
But when I reboted I get "No boot signature in partition".
EDIT2: I tried re-editing lilo.conf and use lilo -A to activate hdc2 but got:"no changes to partition table..." and the problem remains.
