I am new at linux and I decided to try LFS so that I would learn more.
My problem is when I run /sbin/lilo, I get the error:
Fatal: First boot sector is version 21.4. Expecting Version 21.7.
I installed LFS from Redhat 7.1
The new LFS 3.0 system would work perfectly, including LILO.
As a typical newbie, I logged in as root on the Redhat system with GNOME as
my window manager, which is very unstable. As I logged out, it crashed the
system and I could not get back into X. As I don't know much about Linux, I
decided to save time and re-install redhat linux and consequently
reformatted the /boot partition.
After the installation I changed the /etc/lilo.conf so that I could boot lfs
and use the Redhat kernel (The LFS kernel was wiped out when /boot was
I can now boot LFS, I then Compiled a new Kernel (Version 2.4), and then
tried to use LILO, but I get the error described above. I had to use the
version in Redhat linux, which still works.
This is the first time I have asked for help, so it would be great if I
could also have some feedback on how I asked (for example, did I come to the
right place,) Thankyou
