What happens when you enter the kernel and initrd lines manually instead of using the configfile command?


Same error message!

I will soon make a new installation of paldo. (At the moment I've no time.) Probably that helps...

I just made a new installation on a new partition but nothing changed: I get exactly the same error message.

During the installation paldo writes grub to /dev/sda in the MBR. After rebooting the system (and having ejected the live cd) I selected paldo in the grub menu and it started. But unfortunately paldo didn't have recognised my Debian system during installation. So every time I want to start Debian, I have to enter:

Code[In neuem Fenster öffnen]
root (hd0,0)
configfile /boot/grub/menu.lst


You will agree that this is very tedious. Therefore I started my Knoppix live cd for making a new grub installation:

Code[In neuem Fenster öffnen]
mkdir /tmp/debian
mount /dev/sda1 /media/debian
chroot /media/debian
grub-install /dev/sda


Now, I've copied following lines from paldo's menu.lst into Debian's menu.lst file :

Code[In neuem Fenster öffnen]
title paldo stable (linux 2.6.24.7-paldo1-x86)
root (hd0,1)
kernel /boot/linux-2.6.24.7-paldo1-x86 root=/dev/disk/by-uuid/ecd0f6b1-9dbd-45e5-b439-4ea1ddc72cb0 resume=/dev/disk/by-uuid/de4df1ad-788e-465b-a16a-6f187a88792a vga=0x317
initrd /boot/initramfs-2.6.24.7-paldo1-x86


After rebooting my computer, the paldo entry appeared in my grub menu, but I get the same error message as before:

Code[In neuem Fenster öffnen]
Error 2: Bad file or directory type.


The same error message appears when I (try) to enter this (in grub command line):

Code[In neuem Fenster öffnen]
root (hd0,1)


up to here all works -- no error message, but now:

Code[In neuem Fenster öffnen]
configfile /boot/grub/menu.lst


Code[In neuem Fenster öffnen]
Error 2: Bad file or directory type.


I've no idea what the problem could be...

Hi,

while booting enter the command mode, try the following.

root (hd0,2) ----->Assuming paldo is installed in /dev/sda3

kernel /boot/linux-2.6.24.7-paldo1-x86 root=/dev/sda3 vga=0x317

initrd /boot/initramfs-2.6.24.7-paldo1-x86

Thanks.

I’m back … I’ve uninstalled paldo in August because of this grub bug and because I didn’t get any response from anybody. Now, I was just wondering if somebody answered me in the meantime and apparently someone did. So I installed the new 1.15 release. Unfortunately I had exactly the same problems as with version 1.14. Also vasanth’s last advice didn’t help me. Are there any other tips or do I have to uninstall paldo again? This would be a pity because otherwise it’s quite a nice distro.

The issue is probably that the GRUB version in your Debian installation doesn't support the 256-byte inode ext3 partitions (default for some time now).

If you keep paldo's GRUB and just copy the Debian entry into menu.lst, it should all work.

Thank you very much for your help! So it isn’t a bug.

It’s going to be interesting if it’ll work with Debian Lenny …
