Error output with LILO while updating my lilo.config
hi nice folks

i added an other kernel to my system every thing was right.

during the LILO update i wrote similar thing that i have in my lilo file (changing releases and name) then i typed

lilo -C /etc/lilo.config.anaconda
i got:

Warning: device 0x0303 exceeds 1024 cylinder limit
Fatal: sector 35627804 too large for linear mode (try 'lba32' instead)
any help or idea

thanks in advance

Must be a very old Lilo you've got.

Just do what Lilo asked you to do, i.e. add

at the beginning of /etc/lilo.conf.anaconda.

It will instruct Lilo to access your hard disk in LBA32 mode and therefore able to cross the 1024 cyclinder barrier.

hi again

i did what u said

then lilo -C /etc/lilo.conf.anaconda

i got

Fatal: 'linear' and 'lba32' (-l and -L) are mutually exclusive.
any other suggestion

But you may have arranged the Bios to address the hard disk in a certain way or have a "linear" statement in the /etc/lilo.conf.anaconda. According to Lilo documentation "Linear" is one of the Global options to enable the hard disk sectors addressed linearly instead of in a sector/head/cylinder format.
