My problem may be related to this ``linear'' option.
Debian is rooted on my 1st SCSI (1.0G) ((and continued on my
3rd 4.3G SCSI). BSD is rooted on my 2nd SCSI (4.3G).
After many trials last night, LILO worked to boot Linux;
it began to see my BSD boot partition, but then hung.
On stdout was:
and then an infinite hang. I haven't touched anything in
the /boot directory, so /boot/boot.b has to be good.
How can I tell if there is trouble with the geometry of my
SCSI drives? More importantly, how can I resolve any problems?!
And, what are the chances that BSD will boot if I add the
``linear'' option after striking ``compact''?
