the problem is in this two line, from silo.c:
sprintf (spart, "/dev/sd%c%c", ((st1.st_dev & 0xf0) >> 4) + 'a', (st1.st_dev & 0xf) + '0');
sprintf (bootdev2, "/dev/sd%c1", ((st1.st_dev & 0xf0) >> 4) + 'a');
the result is that spart="/dev/sd" and bootdev2="/dev/sd"
obviously, there's no superblock on /dev/sd
they should be something like /dev/sda1
I think that those lines failed because st1 is a struct stat defined
in sys/stat.h; stat.h include some F_IS* symbols, too, and they are
already defined in linux/stat.h which is included from *fs.h
used by silo. To make sys/stat.h and linux/stat.h coexists, I have
added some #undef to silo sources, probably in the wrong way,
causing that error.
So, should I use <linux/stat.h> or <sys/stat.h>?
Any way, when I sobstitute those two lines with these one:
sprintf (spart, "/dev/sda1");
sprintf (bootdev2, "/dev/sda1");
silo is able to install itself; anyway, the boot fails with
only the two first letter: "SI"
still working on it
