I downloaded a copy of MythDora (http://g-ding.tv/?q=MythDoraV1.5)
, an iso of FC3 set up for MythTV.
Burned and booted. It wanted an hdd all of its own, so I removed my Mandrake 2005LE disk (kernel 2.6.11-12mdk) , and put in a clean one.
MythDora installed. I have spent three days configuring it, and it is still not working, but I am persevering!
I miss my Mandrake 2005LE, so I put that disk back in as master (hda), and set MythDora to be the slave (hdb). Mandriva is back. Now I need to mount the MythDora partitions so I can work out how to add MythDora to my lilo menu.
I have a couple of problems here:
hdb looks like this:
#fdisk -l /dev/hdb
Disk /dev/hdb: 160.0 GB, 160041885696 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 19457 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/hdb1 * 1 13 104391 83 Linux
/dev/hdb2 14 19457 156183930 8e Linux LVM
I can mount /dev/hdb1, which is MythDora's boot partition, but I cannot work out how to mount /dev/hdb2 which is an LVM. I would like to be able to mount this partition in Mandriva, so I can have a poke around the MythDora config files from the safety and convenience of Mandriva (MythDora has a very ugly window-manager, and a very basic set of tools because it is essentially "just" a PVR application).
So, how can I mount /dev/hdb2 ?
I can see MythDora's grub.conf, and it looks like this:
# 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
title MythDora (2.6.12-1.1372_FC3)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.12-1.1372_FC3 ro root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00
How should I translate this into a suitable entry in my lilo.conf which is on hda?
