Unable to install LILO on an HP RAID Machine
We just got a spanking new HP ProLiant DL380! We want to put on Slackware 9.1. I've got two problems, one minor and one major. Here are my install notes.
HP ProLiant DL 380
4 18GB SCSI Drives
Smart Array 5i Controller
Currently Configured as 4 Logical Drives with Raid 0
I've booted up from the CD and loaded the raid.s kernel. I've located the 4 drives at
/dev/cciss/c0d0 and so on. I used fdisk to create a very quick and dirty layout on the first drive:
/dev/c0d0p1 300MB /boot
/dev/c0d0p2 2GB swap
/dev/c0d0p3 the rest /
I did not fdisk the other three drives. Slack is bitching about that, but I don't think it's fatal.
Slackware loads up and everything goes well until the LILO install. I ask slack to stick LILO on the MBR and it says it can't. (minor) How do I get LILO installed?
So I just made a boot floppy. I reboot from floppy and get to just before the login prompt. I get an endless series of 6 character strings like this
They scroll so fast I can't read them. Any ideas?
