Thread: 3 Linux Questions

  1. #11

    Re:3 Linux Questions

    okay... I guess I was using emacs to edit. The changes I put in saved fine, but when I ran the /sbin/lilo -v, I get an error about an unrecognized token "Linux" at line 13 or higher. So, I figured that it was because of the capital letter (kind of like the log-on names). I edited lilo.conf again, taking out the capital letters, and I still get the same error, except the token is "linux" instead of "Linux". Now, for some reason, when I try to switch to su in the middle of my session, I type su, but when the terminal asks for the password, nothing happens. It acts like my keyboard is disconnected, not acepting any inputs. I am lost...

    paste lilo.conf, you will have made an error somewhere. or somewhere about line 13...
    I think you are just confused about the su, the password isn't shown, but it is being typed in. just type in the pass and hit enter.

    Okay I finally got it to work (you are really going to think I am a retard for this one...) What I did not know was that when labelling the lilo.conf entries, you can't use the space bar. You can add "-", but no space. Geez...all of that anguish to satisfy an anal SOB and his need for a 'pretty' startup menu...
