I have installed Pardus 2008 on my "Linux" disc. There is PCLinuxOS on the first partition, Pardus is on fifth partition. Bootloader of Pardus is installed to the Pardus partition. GRUB in MBR has been installed while PCLinuxOS has been installed, it means all booting sequences are written in /boot/grub/menu.lst in the first partition. After installation I have added the entry for booting of Pardus there
Quote
title Pardus 2008
root (hd0,4)
kernel (hd0,4)/boot/kernel-2.6.25.9-101 root=LABEL=PARDUS_ROOT vga=791 splash=silent quiet resume=/dev/sdb6
initrd (hd0,4)/boot/initramfs-2.6.25.9-101
but Pardus didn't boot and following error appeared on the screen:
Quote
Error 2: bad file of directory type
  So I have added following command to menu.lst
Quote
title Pardus 2008
root (hd0,4)
chainloader +1
and this sequnce has been  succeeded. But only once because for the second time already Pardus didn't boot and following error appeared on the screen:
Quote
Booting 'Pardus 2008'
root (hd0,4)
Filesystem type is ext2fs , partition type 0x83
chainloader +1
Error 13: invalid or unsupported executable format
Really it drives me mad. Huh? Is anybody able to help me to find a solution ? Thanks in advance.  Smiley

Hello,

you must register PCLinuxOS in the Grub from Pardus.

I found this in the German Forum von PCLinuxOS

Look here

How to register? And why ? I boot via GRUB from PCLinuxOS and there is added sequence for Pardus from Pardus Grub.
Unfortunately that is German forum and I am able to speak German a little only.
Can you explain it to me step by step what do you mean by that registration of PCLinuxOS in Grub from Pardus ? Thanks in advance.  Smiley

 I had the exact same errors . What works for me is installing Pardus to the root of it's hd (hd1) and chainloading (hd1) , however it looks like you have it installed to your master drive . I think Andreas is right - you will have to use Pardus for your main grub , reinstall PCLinuxOS grub to root partition , and add PCLinux to Pardus grub ( chainloader +1 (hd0,0) rootnoverify - not an ideal solution . I can tell you that once up and running it performs perfectly . You might want to boot PCLinux and install it's grub to root first .

I understand you, but I can't comprehend why even command :
title Pardus 2008
rootnoverify (hd0,4)
chainloader +1
is not functional if  I am (or was) able to boot to other distros (OpenSUSE, sidux, Mandriva) by that. I don't want to change Grub. There are more distros on my disk and I don't want to risk possible other malfunction during their booting.
Here is menu.lst of PCLinuxOS

Have you used the setup command after editing menu.lst ?

For details, see
Code:
info grub
.

Why ? Menu.lst is textual file, where it is possible to add wanted sequences.  I edited menu.lst many many times ( maybe 200 times) when I installed and tested a new distro and always all was without problems.

2 atolboo: thank you but unfortunately your solution didn't help me. Sad

looks like pardus wasnt successfully installed Smiley did you check md5sum?

so if theres the same problem after a fresh install so - you might have to put pardus to mbr and change menu.lst like you did before... Smiley

aunt edit: save your menu.lst to be sure....

reinstall grub by pclos cant be such a heavy task, cant it? Wink

Certainly it is not difficult task.
But how can you explain me that I was able to boot Pardus via command rootnoverify.. etc immediately after installation of Pardus and adding of Pardus booting sequence to menu.lst of PCLOS ?
But only once, second booting after PC restarting was already  failing. This is very strange.
Well, never mind. However thanks to all for their good-will to help me.  Smiley
