[Solved]Error 15-Grub-legacy fresh install.

The situation is that I had installed the system, but I really hate grub2.
What I did was install grub-legacy of AUR, but now my system will not boot.

My /boot/grub/menu.lst looks like this:

# (0) Arch Linux
title  Arch Linux  
root   (hd0,3)
kernel /vmlinuz-linux root=/dev/sda4 ro 
initrd /initramfs-linux.img

And mi root partition:

/dev/sda4

I have these files in  /boot:

vmlinuz-linux
initramfs-linux.img

What am I doing wrong?

Re: [Solved]Error 15-Grub-legacy fresh install.

Did you install grub to the mbr?

Note: installing the package does not do this.

Yep.
Install grub with:

grub-install /dev/sda

And on reboot I get the grub to select the system.

Re: [Solved]Error 15-Grub-legacy fresh install.

I see. Do /vmlinuz-linux and /initramfs-Linux.img exist? If you only have them in /boot, then you need to specify that in the configuration file. e.g. 'kernel /boot/vmlinuz-linux'

LOL
That was it.
Just had to add / boot to grub and ready, the solution was simple but I did not know what to do.

Thanks for helping.

Re: [Solved]Error 15-Grub-legacy fresh install.

Ok, first of all, read: http://www.archlinux.org/news/grub-lega … supported/

If you really hate GRUB 2, try Syslinux. It's very similar to GRUB Legacy. See: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Be … bootloader for an example configuration.

If you're really set on using GRUB Legacy, google and search the forum for "grub error 15", and visit the GRUB Legacy wiki page. I'm sure you'll find something. It's actually a very common error.


Edit: I see you found a solution. Please mark the thread as solved (by editing the first post), so that other people (including yourself sometimes) may find useful.
