Chameleon and grub (/boot)
« on: April 07, 2009, 07:24:08 AM »
Thanks for the good work….

Chameleon cannot see my /boot partition (GRUB), hd(0,4) in my drive with MBR. I do have grub installed and working in it. Is there a way of editing the partition list in Chameleon as can be done with grub.conf?? Thanks

I am not sure why you might be having this problem, but I am sure that Linux/grub/ext3 works with Chameleon.

I have an external USB drive partitioned MBR with openSUSE installed which is bootable from my Chameleon boot menu.  The drive is partitioned as primary 1 - ext3 "/", primary 2 - swap, primary 3 - LVM to contain all the other mount points.  Grub is installed in the boot sector of partition 1.

I hope you have good luck in resolving your problem.

chameleon shows ext2/3 partitions if and only if a bootloader is installed to that partition. (see LILO/grub manual on installing to partition and not MBR)
