Fedora Core 3 & Suse 9.2 Prof on one system


Hello people,

I have Fedora Core 3 installed and running on my first (IDE) hard drive and Suse 9.2 Professional installed on a second (IDE) hard drive. Suse works fine if I boot from CD and boot installed installation.

I use Grub as boot manager and would like my Suse boot in the list of boot options.

In Grub I can now only select two Fedora Kernels

(there is no Windows on the hard drives)

so Fedora is on /dev/hda1 and SuSe is on /dev/hdb1?

*digs in memory to remember where the Grub config file is*

/etc/grub.conf

Atleast that's where it is on RedHat9

You should be able to edit it, just look for some info on google, in the "man grub" and the "info grub"

Hello Dunedain,

Yes, Fedora Core 3 is on /dev/hda1 and SuSe 9.2 Prof is on /dev/hdb1.

And yes in Fedora Core 3 Grub config is still /etc/grub.conf , but I would like to know how the exta lines in Grub will look like. I read so many different how-to's that I get a bit confused.

Grub.conf has now;

# grub.conf generated by anaconda
#
# Note that you do not have to rerun grub after making changes to this file
# NOTICE: You have a /boot partition. This means that
# all kernel and initrd paths are relative to /boot/, eg.
# root (hd0,0)
# kernel /vmlinuz-version ro root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00
# initrd /initrd-version.img
#boot=/dev/hda
default=0
timeout=5
splashimage=(hd0,0)/grub/splash.xpm.gz
hiddenmenu
title Fedora Core (2.6.9-1.681_FC3)
root (hd0,0)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.9-1.681_FC3 ro root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 rhgb quiet
initrd /initrd-2.6.9-1.681_FC3.img
title Fedora Core (2.6.9-1.678_FC3)
root (hd0,0)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.9-1.678_FC3 ro root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 rhgb quiet
initrd /initrd-2.6.9-1.678_FC3.img

Well, I'll leave that part to the more experienced people, I can make a guess, but if you use this and it goes to hell, I want you to know, that you took the responsibility of using _my_ script..

hiddenmenu
title Fedora Core (2.6.9-1.681_FC3)
root (hd0,0)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.9-1.681_FC3 ro root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 rhgb quiet
initrd /initrd-2.6.9-1.681_FC3.img

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Right, this top part specifies the Fedora selection of the menu, so
what we need to do is to get the same information from the SuSe
and apply it in the snippet below.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

title SuSe Prof (kernel_name_here(I think))
root (hd0,0)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.9-1.678_FC3 ro root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 rhgb quiet
initrd /initrd-2.6.9-1.678_FC3.img

Uhm, anyway, let's leave this to someone who actually know's it, neh?

Hello Dunedain,

changing the title of my second Fedora Core 3 kernel doesn't help much, it will probably still start the second (backup) Fedora Core 3 kernel on my system.

I have to add some new lines to boot my Suse 9.2 Prof installation on my second hard drive. But which lines I have no idea....

With kind regards,

Richard
