LILO leads to kernel panic on Dell PowerEdge 2200
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:29:50 EDT
I have installed a "everything" clean install on a Dell PowerEdge 2200
with 2 PII/333. If using LILO during boot, the kernel will panic. The
only way to avoid this is, at the lilo prompt, hit tab and then type linux
root=/dev/sdb6 where sdb6 is the / partition. Adding various lines
(append, etc.) to lilo.conf made no difference. The system config is as
Dell PowerEdge 2200 BIOS A07
2 PentiumII processors at 333MHz
2 Adaptec aic78xx SCSI controllers
1 contoller conrols:
Quantum Atlas III 9.1 GB SCSI HDSC (/dev/sda)
NEC 466 CD-ROM
HP 1537A DDS tape drive
the other controller controls
Quantum Atlas III 9.1 GB SCSI HDSC (/dev/sdb)
S3 764 video chipset and 2mb video ram
19" Trinitron DELL monitor
What does your /etc/lilo.conf look like?
