Re: [K12OSN] GRUB?



With only the GRUB prompt how can you determin the version you have?

2008/11/19 Manoj Kumar <manoj u kumar gmail com>
>From the grub> prompt, type the following to boot the server
1. grub> root (hdx,y)
where x is the hard disk containing /boot
y is the partition number of /boot
2. grub> kernel /vmlinuz-<version> ro root=<device file name of root partition>
type the appropriate kernel to boot & the device file name of root partition
eg.,
grub> kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.18-8.el5 ro root=/dev/sda2
3. grub> /initrd-<version>.img
type the appropriate initrd version
4. grub> boot

Perform the above 4 steps & see if the server boots. If it boots then open /boot/grub/grub.conf and make the neccessary changes or if the file is missing create one

Thanks
Manoj

I did some updates and then rebooted the server.  Now all I'm getting is a grub prompt.  Not sure where to go from here...
