I seem to be having problems with lilo, when i boot up my pc after the bios loading all i get is a blinking underscore and it just keeps on blinking forever. The installation of my slackware 10.2 went through smoothly with no errors. I used a boot disk and booted to where i installed linux and it works, everything works fine so my guess is its LILO.
What i tried:
Thinking it was a slackwares installation problem, i formatted and reinstalled only to come across the same problem. I deleted lilo.conf and created a new one twice, once with the newbie mode and one more time with the step by step mode, no errors were present and a new config was created each time, booted up and had the same problem with both of em. I then uninstalled the LILO package from slackwares pkgtool , downloaded the latest version, installed it and made a new conf file again and still i get the same problem.I surfed around and found a few answers that didnt work for me.
My lilo is installed in the root partition and not the MBR
I am running slackware 10.2 with the default kernel.
AMD XP Cpu with a kt400 mobo 1 gig of ram.
Any help would be greatly appreciated..Thanx in advance
