Tri-boot : CentOS x Fedora x FreeBSD
Hi Folks,

I am stuck with a problem using grub for tri-boot. The funny part of it is that with CentOS and FreeBSD it just works fine. :cool: But Fedora does not take off.

The message the system gives after I took the Fedora on Boot menu is:


Error 15:
File not found.

Here is my grub.conf content:


title CentOS (2.6.32-220.4.1.el6.x86_64)
        root (hd0,0)
        kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.32-220.4.1.el6.x86_64 ro root=UUID=5ee02a02-bb$
        initrd /boot/initramfs-2.6.32-220.4.1.el6.x86_64.img
title Fedora
        root (hd0,2)
        configfile /boot/grub/menu.lst
        kernel /boot/vmlinuz ro root=/dev/sda3
title FreeBSD
        rootnoverify (hd0,1)
        chainloader +1

I also tried for Fedora in the same way as done for FreeBSD, it does not work for FC. :cry:

I would love to not have to reinstall the Fedora partition, because it is a development workstation, with a lot of work on installs and setup already finished on it, and redoing it would cost time. I guess, it is possible to get a better fix than just reinstalling it.

Could someone send some light on how to fix it? :D

All comments and suggestions are welcome and highly appreciated. :hattip:

Well... here is the quick solution:

Just run the DVD FC16 and choose to install, and then pick the option to upgrade existing version.

Now FC + CentOS + FreeBSD are boot all together.

On FC16 grub2 is in use.

Hope this information can be useful for others. :D
