slackware 10 post-install problems


HI,

I have installed slackware 10 using several partitions, (all of them using ext2 fs). I configured the mount points for these partitions and installed the system using the setup program. It installed all the packages, but It crashed when installing the kernel. Lilo wasnt installed too, it says there was an error. Now, i don't have any kernel or bootloader. I boot from the cd.

I'd like to know how to install it from the rescuedisk prompt. And how to install lilo would be appreciated also.

Thank you!

Matt

to install lilo, you need to be root (type su at the command line, and enter your password). then run liloconfig and finally, lilo. so from the command line, it would look like this:

$ su
Password:
# liloconfig
# lilo

if your kernel didn't install properly you may still not be able to boot though. if i were you i would check the integrity of your cdroms, make sure they downloaded and burned properly (search around for how to do that, there are lots of posts...try searching "md5"). then i would probably just reinstall. out of curiosity, did you choose full install? did you select packages yourself? it's possible you left out something crucial without knowing it.
