10. Configuring the Bootloader

Content:

10.a. Installing PALO

On the PA-RISC platform, the boot loader is called palo. You can find the configuration file in /etc/palo.conf. Here is a sample configuration:

Code Listing 1.1: /etc/palo.conf example

--commandline=2/vmlinux root=/dev/sdb2 HOME=/
--recoverykernel=/vmlinux.old
--init-partitioned=/dev/sdb

The first line tells palo the location of the kernel and which boot parameters it must use. 2/vmlinux means the kernel named /vmlinux resides on the second partition. Beware, the path to the kernel is relative to the partition, not to the root of your filesystem.

The second line indicates which recovery kernel to use. If it is your first install and you do not have a recovery kernel, please comment this out. The third line indicates on which disk palo will reside.

When configuration is done, just run palo.

Code Listing 1.2: Applying the PALO configuration

# palo

Now continue with Rebooting the System.

10.b. Rebooting the System

Exit the chrooted environment and unmount all mounted partitions. Then type in that one magical command you have been waiting for: reboot.

Code Listing 2.1: Exiting the chroot, unmounting all partitions and rebooting

# exit
cdimage ~# cd
cdimage ~# umount /mnt/gentoo/boot /mnt/gentoo/proc /mnt/gentoo
cdimage ~# reboot

Of course, don't forget to remove the bootable CD, otherwise the CD will be booted again instead of your new Gentoo system.

Once rebooted in your Gentoo installation, finish up with Finalizing your Gentoo Installation.
