I've just installed a second instance of Linux on my alpha.
My alpha is a Personal Workstation, otherwise known as "miata".
My setup is as follows:
sda1 = old milo
sda2 = old /
sda3 = swap
sdb1 = data
sdc1 = new milo
sdc2 = swap
sdc3 = new /
When I was done installing onto sdc3, I then tried to boot it
(from the "old milo" using the following milo paramters:
boot sdc3:/boot/vmlinuz root=/dev/sdc3
It then shows:
boot/vmlinuz path component is not a directory
Failed to load the kernel.
boot sda2:/boot/vmlinuz root=/dev/sdc3
Does work (sda2:/boot/vmlinuz is the location of the kernel on
my old installation).
This last problem is the one that stops me from being able to
boot the "new linux"... I don't know if it's a milo problem or
something else (maybe you're not allowed to boot from sdc)... The
strange thing is that I can do a "ls sda2:/boot" and not a "ls
(it gives the "boot/vmlinuz path component is not a directory" error).
Maybe I should put the "target" disk on SCSI ID 0....
I also couldn't find anything on the axp-list or milo HOWTO that
points at a sollution or shows a similar case...
Does anyone have an idea what I'm doing wrong? Help is appreciated...
