Unable to run kubuntu from lilo


I have a lilo boot at the moment which I prefer to grub. I can run lilo from my slackware installation. My problem is that kubuntu will not run. The boot starts but then halts with errors of /etc/fstab not being present.

My lilo.conf has
image=/mnt/hdb6/boot/vmlinuz-2.6.12-9-386
label ="kubuntu"
root=/dev/hdb6
initrd=/mnt/hdb6/boot/initrd.img-2.6.12-9-386
read-only

which corresponds with what was in image.lst for grub

title Ubuntu, kernel 2.6.12-9-386
root (hd1,5)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.12-9-386 root=/dev/hdb6 ro quiet splash
initrd /boot/initrd.img-2.6.12-9-386
savedefault
boot

This worked when with grub, but what looks like a corresponding section in lil.conf does not work. It seems that the root is not being located correctly. I reaaly prefer lilo to grub. What do I need to do to get kubuntu working with lilo?

Thanks

The /mnt/hdb6 looks fishy.
Maybe it should be just plain (hd1,5) as it is in Grub?

Try:

Code:
boot=/dev/hdb
prompt
timeout=50
default=Ubuntu

image=/boot/vmlinuz-2.6.12-9-386
  label=Ubuntu
  read-only
  root=/dev/hdb6
  initrd=/boot/initrd.img-2.6.12-9-386
This may or may not work, depending on your setup ^_^ Might help if you say a bit more about your system

I have windows on hda
Slackware 10.2, my usual distro on hdb2
Slackware 10.1 on hdb5
Kubuntu on hdb6

I am running lilo from slackware on hdb2. I do not think that
image=/boot/vmlinuz-2.6.12-9-386
would work as when I am running lilo /boot/ is the slackware boot directory and the kubuntu kernel is at /mnt/hdb6/boot/

Hello Arubin. Just saw your post yesterday while looking for information to set up my system in the way you did. It works for me. Could you describe the error you get, if it's still relevant?

I am using grub now so I am not too bothered about not getting it to work with Lilo.

Thanks
