View Full Version : Hdd install auto boot into 2.65?

05-26-2004, 12:22 AM
I now have 3.4 installed on my hd. I'm wondering if there is a way to have Knoppix automatically boot into kernl 2.65 without having to choose
between 2.4 and 2.6 using the Knoppix GUI at boot?

TIA, Jesse

su to root
emacs /etc/lilo.conf

scroll down you should see something that says
default = "Linux"
and underneath that you should see three things like Linux, 2.4, 2.6 or somehting like that

to make 2.6 default boot, change where it says default = "Linux" to whatever the label of the 2.6 is.
Then save that
Then in the console type: lilo

I tried editing "default="Linux" to: default=2.6.6 which doesn't work.
Has this actually worked for you?

TIA, Jesse

yeah... i changed the label of whatever the 2.6 label was to "2.6"

then set: default = "2.6"

you have to run lilo after for it to work

PROhan: Thanks much for the information. It works!
default="Linux(2.6)-2" I typed lilo from the command line and rebooted, as you suggested.
Thanks, again.
