Do you build LFS/BLFS on qemu with kvm enabled?

More generally, what virtualization software do you use?

How do your /boot partition looks like? What bootloader are you using? How did you configure it?

Hello,

i am using GRUB as my boot loader.Slackware is sda1 and BLFS is sda3 and i add my both partitions(Slackware 14.1 and LFS/BLFS 7.6)by using liloconfiguration.i think my kernel not loading because when i click my boot image it displays as
Code:
"vmlinuz-3.16.2-lfs-7.6"(6.0 MB) unknown
i think this is not excuteble file right?i don't understanding without loading this image how does LFS/BLFS system starts?when i run
Code:
uname -r
it displays a host kernel version,so it BLFS system starts with the help of host system kernel right?
friends please help me how to boot my BLFS system.Thanks in advance.

If you use grub, then you need to configure the menu.lst file. lilconfig is for using lilo, not grub.

If you are using grub2 (which is what comes with Slackware 14.1, if I remember correctly), you should be able to re-run the grub-mkconfig command as you had done earlier in another thread to automatically create the appropriate entries for you.
