command lilo


I just modified lilo.conf and i want to test it but it doesn't seem to work.

Do i need to load the new lilo.conf before booting ?

How ?

if you read the manpage for lilo it will tell you that you need to run "lilo" as root to make any changes you made to /etc/lilo.conf take effect

Just run lilo from a terminal as root after you changed the liloconf; that takes care of it.Check for errormsgs.Just did mine a minute ago,going down for reboot now and hopefully back up.

When did this error message pop-up (eg. Did it just pop up all a sudden)

BTW: You can copy and paste the following into the file called profile under the /etc directory.
Tell us ASAP if that solves your "path not found" problem or not.


Quote:
# For root users, ensure that /usr/local/sbin, /usr/sbin, and /sbin are in
# the $PATH. Some means of connection don't add these by default (sshd comes
# to mind).
if [ "`id -u`" = "0" ]; then
echo $PATH | grep /usr/local/sbin 1> /dev/null 2> /dev/null
if [ ! $? = 0 ]; then
PATH=/usr/local/sbin:/usr/sbin:/sbin:$PATH
fi
This is from the file profile on my system under the /etc directory
