Question Unable to boot: Loading LinuxEBDA is big


Hi
After installing a bootsplash on my machine, I cannot boot anymore and lilo puts out:
Code:
Loading LinuxEBDA is big; kernel setup stack overlaps LILO second stage
Could someone tell me what that means and what I could have done wrong?

Hello mate,

I don't know what it means exactly but I did have it happen to my box and all I had to do was re-run lilo to clear the error.

i am having the same problem, i wold just run lilo -v but if i cant boot how can i do that? i cant get in single user mode and i tryed doing it from knoppix with no luck. i was using an older vertion of knoppix so i am downloading another livecd (slax) to try it with that, i dont think this will work though. is there another way of going about this that i am missing?
