Re: switch from Reiserfs to ext3: Grub or LILO won't install

Has somebody got a clue? Please tell me if this is the wrong mailinglist.


I installed the amd64 version of Sarge. I chose Reiserfs, did my testing
and installed it again on a ext3 partition.

Now Grub won't install:
The file /boot/grub/stage1 not read correctly
(/boot actually doesn't exist)

same for LILO. It hangs at
Setting up LILO 22.6.1-6.2

I tried everything from automatic partitioning to manually creating
I also cleared the MBR using:
dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sda bs=1024 count=1

Nothing helps. Interesting part is when I reinstall on a Reiserfs
partition again, Grub installs fine.

It's a RAID5 setup. When installing on Reiserfs I don't need to do
anything special so I don't see why ext3 would be different.
