Error messages after post-installation configuration
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:54 EDT
In TUI, with root partition above the first 1024 cylinders of the disk and
no boot partition (I'm going to make a boot floppy), after 'performing
post-install configuration' I get error messages on the screen. They are
partially covered by the Bootdisk dialog (shouldn't it have a space in
between 'Boot' and 'disk'?), but the remainder says:
ng: device 0x0303 exceeds 1024
Warning: device 0
Did you create the root partition above cyl 1024 with disk druid or fdisk?
I don't remember clearly. Disk druid I think.
You need to skip the lilo config stage in the installer and this warning
will not appear.
