Subject: [gentoo-user] problem with lilo and one of my kernels
Date: Sat, 22 Dec 2012 10:41:34
1 Hi. Today on one of my test kernels where I am using git bisect to find
2 a bug, I got the following when running lilo:
3 Boot image: /boot/vmlinuz-3.6.0-rc4-00011-g2273929-dirty
4 Fatal: Setup length exceeds 63 maximum; kernel setup will overwrite boot
5 loader
7 I looked and there is a bug on gentoo, but it says the problem is fixed,
8 but I have sys-boot/lilo-23.2-r2 andthe problem persists.
10 Is my setup really too large and if so, how do I make it smaller, or is
11 there an alternative to boot my kernels which does not have this
12 problem?
14 Thanks in advance for any ideas you might have.
