Building LFS-4.0 I have decided to use GRUB instead of Lilo, however I'm
having some problems (I use grub-0.91).
The grub device map looks like this:
LFS-4.0 is built on /dev/hda, host system is Suse-8.0 on /dev/hde.
I have partitioned /dev/hda in this way:
/dev/hda1 24MB Boot xfs
/dev/hda2 514MB Swap swap
/dev/hda3 40000MB / xfs
At grub prompt screen I type find /boot/grub/stage1 and it returns Error
15: file not found; I type root(hd0,0) and it returns Filesystem type
unknown, partition type 0x83 and at least I type
grub-install --root-directory=/boot /dev/hda and it returns df: warning:
cannot read table of mounted filesystems No such file or directory.
I have copied in /boot/grub stage1 stage2 xfs_stage1_5.
Hope someone could help me.
If you mount /dev/hda1 to /boot, you probably need to type 'find
/grub/stage1' as grub is in the first directory of /dev/hda1. When grub
says Filesystem type unknown, you might need to recompile grub, enabling
xfs in ./configure, and use all new files, so also the new stage1,
