Lilo Configuration

Postby TimeGoneBomb » Sun Dec 16, 2007 8:30 pm

Congratulations to all concerned, because Mint 4.0 is the best linux distro that I have used.

One thing doesn't agree with my motherboard though: grub. For reasons I won't go into, I finally decided to remove grub and I installed lilo from synaptic. There was no problems with the installation, but now Lilo just boots windows automatically instead of giving me a boot menu. I'll post my lilo.conf (I probably made a mistake; im a newbie at boot menu configs), and hopefully somebody here will be able to tell me what is wrong. Thanks.

boot="/dev/sda"
lba32
prompt
timeout="10"
root=/dev/sda2
default="Windows"
vga="791"

image="/boot/vmlinuz-2.6.22-14-generic"
append="root=/dev/sda2 ro quiet splash"
label="Linux"
root=/dev/sda2
read-only
initrd="/boot/initrd.img-2.6.22-14-generic"

other=/dev/sda1
label="Windows"

Make sure to run lilo in a terminal after you make changes.

Nevermind, I found my typo. Thanks though.
