I have one machine where I have several versions installed on different partitions. The base partition (/dev/hda1) is Slack 12.1. On a spare partition (/dev/hdc4) I had installed Slackware64-current. Last week I slackpkg upgraded and installed the 126.96.36.199 kernel, and now that partition will not boot. I know that with the new kernels the hd* designation has been removed, and have already redone that fstab (accessing it from a different boot) to reflect the sd*. Here is the slack64 section of my lilo.conf:
# Linux bootable partition config begins
image = /other/spare4/boot/vmlinuz
root = /dev/hdc4
label = Slackware64
read-only # Partitions should be mounted read-only for checking
# Linux bootable partition config ends
I have already tried changing to "root = /dev/sdc4" but lilo errors out trying to install. I cannot upgrade this machine to SATA because it is an older mobo with SATA 1 ports, and will not recognize SATA 2.
What do I need to add to be able to boot this partition? Thanks.
