Re: multiboot

You can add Arch to your Suse grub config in the normal way - chainloader is only required for non-Linux OSes that need to use their own bootloader.

Re: multiboot

for suse i have:

title Kernel-2.6.18.8-0.1-default
    root (hd0,0)
    kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.18.8-0.1-default root=/dev/sda5 vga=0x346 resume=/dev/sda7 splash=silent showopts
    initrd /initrd-2.6.18.8-0.1-default

title Kernel-2.6.18.8-0.1-default
    root (hd0,10)
    kernel /vmlinuz26 root=/dev/sda10 vga=0x346 resume=/dev/sda7 
    #initrd /initrd-2.6.18.8-0.1-default

Re: multiboot

Here's mine..  obviously change the hd0,4 part to point to your arch partition wink

# (1) Arch Linux
title  Arch Linux
root   (hd0,4)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz26 root=/dev/sda5 vga=792 ro
initrd /boot/kernel26.img

Re: multiboot

/dev/sda1 -> /boot
/dev/sda5 -> /
/dev/sda6 -> /var
/dev/sda7 -> swap
/dev/sda8 -> /home
/dev/sda9 -> used for arch linux (all the file system need it by its is there.... boot, home...)


title Arch Linux
    root(hd0,10)
    kernel /boot/vmlinuz26 root=/dev/sda9 vga=792 ro
    initrd /boot/kernel26.img

in /dev/sda9 partition, folder boot i have
kconfig26              kernel26-fallback.img  kernel26.img           System.map26           vmlinuz26

when i try to boot i get:

error 15: file not found


any idea?

Re: multiboot

If arch is on sda9, then that should read

root(hd0,8)

Remember, Grub counts from 0, so sda1 where you have suse's boot is (hd0,0), and sda9 for arch is (hd0,8)
