Question LILO -v error


Why do i receive this error after installing the latest kernel? "message" doesn't exist, is it something what i can create myself?

Thanks!

Have a look in your /boot directory. In my system there's a file there called boot_message.txt. If you have that or have any similar text file, edit /etc/lilo.conf to point to that file instead of /boot/message.

If there's no file at all, then I'd imagine there's no problem making your own.
