Following the procedure for combining LVM and LUKS (at
arrived at at the Lilo config stage and the installer warns that the
liloconfig installation will initially fail until after having fixed the
next chroot and mkinitrd steps.
However, perhaps I have a different type of error:
Fatal: open /dev/sda: No medium found
Sorry, but the attempt to install LILO has returned an error, so LILO has
not been correctly installed. You'll have to use a boot disk to start your
machine instead. It should still be possible to get LILO working by editing
the /etc/lilo/conf and reinstall LILO manually. See the LILO man paga and
documentation in /Mmnt/usr/doc/lilo-24.2 for more help. The error message
may be seen above.
The installers pre-selected LILO target was MBR at /dev/sda
My partitions appear as /dev/nvme0n1p1, /dev/nvme0n1p2, /dev/nvme0n1p3
Should perhaps the MBR target therefore be:
/dev/nvme0n or /dev/nvme0n1
... or something different?
I didn't manage to make a boot Flash disk when prompted as the system did
not recognise the additional USB I had added (maybe the media was broken).
How can I boot the system without the boot USB if needed? Can this be done
through the Slackware USB install media and If so, how?
