my kernel compiling and lilo


My question ....(?)

root@coringa:/mnt/antonio# lilo
/proc/misc: No entry for device-mapper found
Is device-mapper driver missing from kernel?
Failure to communicate with kernel device-mapper driver.

Added Slackware12.1 *
Added Windows



My lilo ...

Quote:
# LILO configuration file
# generated by 'liloconfig'
#
# Start LILO global section
# Append any additional kernel parameters:
append=" vt.default_utf8=0"
boot = /dev/hda
LBA32

# Boot BMP Image.
# Bitmap in BMP format: 640x480x8
bitmap = /boot/slack.bmp
# Menu colors (foreground, background, shadow, highlighted
# foreground, highlighted background, highlighted shadow):
bmp-colors = 255,0,255,0,255,0
# Location of the option table: location x, location y, number of
# columns, lines per column (max 15), "spill" (this is how many
# entries must be in the first column before the next begins to
# be used. We don't specify it here, as there's just one column.
bmp-table = 60,6,1,16
# Timer location x, timer location y, foreground color,
# background color, shadow color.
bmp-timer = 65,27,0,255

# Standard menu.
# Or, you can comment out the bitmap menu above and
# use a boot message with the standard menu:
#message = /boot/boot_message.txt

# Wait until the timeout to boot (if commented out, boot the
# first entry immediately):
prompt
# Timeout before the first entry boots.
# This is given in tenths of a second, so 600 for every minute:
timeout = 300
# Override dangerous defaults that rewrite the partition table:
change-rules
reset

Well, reboot and see if the new kernel works. No need to worry about a little warning. : ) I'd however suggest you make the old kernel bootable in lilo as well in case there's a problem with the new one.

This is the device mapper it's looking for. I never had it and also get the warning all the time and don't even know exactly what it does but as everything works, why fix it?

You'll need it if you want to build TrueCrypt,
or use dm-crypt, software RAID or LVM.

device-mapper Wikipedia article

BTW this has nothing to do with lilo.conf.
It's an option you left out of the kernel config.

See this thread for more information, as well as the solution to making those warning messages disappear.
