Lilo warning




I have a Debian box with two DVD-RWs. I built a new kernel 2.6.8
and set up scsi emulation but now I’m getting a warning
when I run lilo and my software doesn’t see either of my drives.

dj:/music/tmp# lilo
Warning: ‘/proc/partitions’ does not match ‘/dev’ directory structure.
Name change: ‘/dev/ide/host0/bus0/target0/lun0/disc’ -> ‘/dev/hda’
Added Linux *

I looked in /dev but don’t have a directory named ide
I’d rather not change /proc/partitions since I’m not sure what changes
to make. Any help would be appreciated.


SCSI emulation is not needed with 2.6x kernels. In fact, it slows things down big time.

It seems like you have an error in your lilo.conf file. You may want to post this to another forum that deals with linux. You will find more answers there.
