triple boot 2 linux : PC BSD, Mandriva, and Mint 11


Hullo! This is my first post here.

Am bit of a newish user of Linux. I just completely erased my Windows in a dual boot setup with Ubuntu 11.10 after destroying the partitions.

Now, I am trying to get to work a triple boot system on one disk.

I installed PC BSD first, without the bootloader. Then Mandriva, then Linux Mint 11, which works fine

Grub 2 loads Mint fine, lists Mandriva, but cannot load it. I only get " a kernel panic not syncing" message. It cannot see the BSD install.

Here is the output of fdisk:

Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sda1 * 1 3188 25599955+ a5 FreeBSD
/dev/sda2 3189 30395 218532391+ 5 Extended
/dev/sda5 3189 6927 30033486 83 Linux
/dev/sda6 6928 8495 12594928+ 83 Linux
/dev/sda7 8496 9004 4088511 82 Linux swap / Solaris
/dev/sda8 9005 30135 169729024 83 Linux
/dev/sda9 30135 30395 2084864 82 Linux swap / Solaris


I tried tinkering with the grub.cfg but could not get it to work.

I also tried installing grub customizer and changing the hard disk partition numbers, but it did not work.

I tried reverting to GRUB legacy but the system crashed and I had to do a boot rescue repair.

Has anyone else tried to make the above distros work?

Any help is appreciated.

If Mint works and you are using its bootloader, post the output of /boot/grub/grub.cfg, at least the part referring to Mandriva.
What partition do you believe Mandriva is on?

You could also get much more detailed information by googling bootinfoscript, going to the site downloading and running the script. Read the instructions available first and post the output here if you need to.

Thank you for the quick reply.

The output is:

Generating grub.cfg ...
Found Debian background: linuxmint.png
Found linux image: /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.38-8-generic
Found initrd image: /boot/initrd.img-2.6.38-8-generic
Found memtest86+ image: /boot/memtest86+.bin
Found unknown Linux distribution on /dev/sda1
Found Mandriva Linux 2011.0 (2011.0) on /dev/sda6
done

I think Mandriva is on 6, based on the output, correct?
Also, I was recently able to boot into BSD from GAG on a cdrom but not into Mandriva.

I just ran the boot info script and am trying to read the results. Will post after I read it all. Thanks!

Wow! What a mess. I've seen worse though.
You have three different bootloaders. Grub Legacy, Grub2 (Mint default) and Burg and boot files for all three are on sda8, your Mint partition. You have Grub Legacy in the master boot record pointing to a menu.lst file on sda8 which has an entry for Mint but not for BSD or Mandriva (The BSD thing will probably need to be a separate thread?). You also have a chainloader entry in the Mint menu.lst file which chainloads to the grub.cfg file for Mint on sda8 which has an entry for Mandriva. You say this shows but doesn't boot? If you compare your Mint entry in its grub.cfg file to the Mandriva entry you will note that there is a uuid entry three times for Mandriva and twice for Mint and the third entry for Mandriva is for the swap partition. You could remove the swap uuid but I don't know if that will help.

My suggestion and what I think would be the fastest solution, reinstall Grub2. You can get info at the site below and it is also a good tutorial on Grub2. Section 4.G explains how to reinstall Grub2 to the master boot record while booted into Mint.

If that doesn't go well, the next best solution given the state of things would be to install Mandriva to the same partition and install its Grub Legacy bootloader to its / (root) partition. Then install Mint and install Grub to the master boot record. If you cannot boot Mandriva then, run sudo update-grub from a terminal in Mint. This will clean up the system of all the bootloader files also.

Haha! Quite a mess I've made, eh? It's a wonder it works.

I'll try some of the solutions you outlined above. Thanks!
