lilo warning when using kernel 2.6.x
every time i use kernel 2.6.x and i modify lilo for some reasons, when i run "lilo -v" i get the following output:
Warning: LBA32 addressing assumed
Reading boot sector from /dev/hdb
Warning: Kernel & BIOS return differing head/sector geometries for device 0x80
Kernel: 13328 cylinders, 15 heads, 63 sectors
BIOS: 784 cylinders, 255 heads, 63 sectors
this is not correct because bios (in AUTO mode) is giving the same geometry given by the kernel.... in fact this is what bios shows:
* bios in LBA mode displays this geometry:
784 cylindres 255 heads 63 sectors
* bios in AUTO mode displays this geometry:
13328 cylindres 15 heads 63 sectors
browsing maxtor site i found that hd specifications are those reported by the kernel (or bios in auto access mode). i tried to add lba32 or linear (that is deprecated) in lilo.conf option section but nothing solved the problem
does it depend on kernel configuration?
how do i correct this problem?
