Thanks. Just for everyone's info here's what SuSE had to say (this appears
under SuSE 6.4 in the online help so I hadn't read it): -
The nice people from Apple, once again, changed a small
thing. In the controll panel, only partitions which contain
a "Mac OS ROM" file, are shown (with exactly this name).
Currently, SuSE's faked "Mac OS ROM" file has the name
Rename the file "os-chooser", within the folder "suseboot",
to "Mac OS ROM". After you have done this, you should be
able to choose the linuxboot partition as your startup disk.
Remember to rename this file (the one changed to "Mac OS
ROM") back to "os-chooser" again, otherwise lilo will not be
able to find and configure this file later. It is only
necessary for this file to be called "Mac OS ROM" when
changing the startup disk.
Sounds reasonable. I'll try both ways, see what happens :-)
Can you go to the OF prompt with
"command+alt+o+f" and type
It should point to your boot partition.
What happens if you type "boot"?
There is a nasty bug in the manual. It says that you have to copy the
"suseboot" folder onto the Linux boot volume, that is not
When you configure lilo it will create a "os-chooser" file
with type tbxi,
but there is already the "Mac OS Rom" file with type tbxi and that one
tries to access your CD. Just remove that "Mac OS Rom" file in the
alsaconf fails when it tries to write the config file?
strange, does "alsaconf" work for you? You have to run
Do you get any errors when you run "depmod -ae"?
Thanks! I'll try that.
This should be easy to fix with "sax2 -af" in console mode.
