I have two hard disks in my machine. In primary-master, I have slack 12.0 and in primary-slave, slack 14.0, which I have just installed. I allowed the installer to write a lilo.conf through a series of questions he did.
These are the main lines left in lilo.conf:
root=/dev/sdb1 # slack 14
The system booted OK. However, I have IDE-ATAPI drives and in slack 12 they have always been called hd (hda, hdb) in my machine. Now I added, in a second image section,
root=/dev/sda1 # slack 12
First lilo told "the boot sector and the map file are in different disks". Then I commented out one of the image sections, ran lilo, uncommented after, ran agian and this time lilo did not complained. But while booting 14.0 did well, 12.0 when booting said: 'VFS: Cannot open root device "801" or unknownblock(8,1)'. Amy sugggestion?
EDIT: why did 12.0 saw the drives as /dev/hd and 14.0 sees them as /dev/sd? Is some scsi emulation being made?
