 paldo start from other grub

Hello and good morning.

I installed paldo on my /dev/sda7 with no problems from the livecd installer.
Now, as I want to try it before replacing my old grub in the boot sector, I'd like to start it from another OS, and I didn't install grub from inside paldo.

But it doesn't work.

When I try to boot, I get the error message

filesystem type is ext2fs
Error 2: bad file or directory type


Here is my entry in the menu.lst. Of course the kernel-entry is one single line, not, as shown below, splitted.

# Linux bootable partition config begins
title sda7: Paldo
root (hd0,6)
kernel /boot/linux-2.6.25.18-paldo1-x86 root=/dev/disk/by-uuid/0e19e164-05c2-44e1-8e67-629b92817ba5 resume=/dev/disk/by-uuid/c6b47d7a-2367-4189-900e-385230c30de2 vga=0x317
initrd /boot/initramfs-2.6.25.18-paldo1-x86
# Linux bootable partition c

Thanks for any help, erch

You need to update your grub in the boot sector. ext3 filesystems are now created with a inode size of 256 bytes by default. Grub requires a patch to handle that inode size, however, most distributions apply the patch, so you probably just have to upgrade.

Thank you very much. I'm answering from my new running paldo
Case closed & running.

----

To be more verbose, I have several linuxes running here: One to work with (Ubuntu), one to try and learn (paldo for now wich I'm going to explore), and one only to start the other ones on a small partition. This is for the case that my working system gets corrupted or something happens, a sort of "stationary rescue disk". But it was a puppy linux. After reinstall grub from ubuntu, paldo came up with no problem. In both cases grub version was 0.97. OK no bad feelings, puppy linux is not meant for hard disks and multiboot, I think, and it is possible that I didn't the installation properly.

Ciao and thanks!
