Yesterday I installed Funtoo on the sdb7 partition. Gentoo is installed on the sdb5. Installation itself was without any broblems. When finished installation of kernel, gentoo-sources-2.6.28, bzImage was automatically copied into /boot directory ( /boot is on the same partition as / ). I did not installed LILO. I have always booted other operating systems ( Windows, Linux, xBSD ) successfully using LILO in Gentoo. This is the related part of lilo.conf
Code:
 image = /boot/kernel-2.6.27-gentoo-r7
        root = /dev/sdb5
        label = Gentoo
        read-only


image = /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.28-gentoo
        root = /dev/sdb7
        label = Funtoo
        read-only
but
Code:
localhost etc # /sbin/lilo
Warning: The boot sector and map file are on different disks.
Added Gentoo
Fatal: open /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.28-gentoo: No such file or directory
In comparison with the Gentoo /boot directory, in Funtoo is only few files
Code:
localhost etc # ls -l /funtoo//boot/
total 3060
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root  928395 Jan  5 23:10 System.map-2.6.28-gentoo
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root   42383 Jan  5 23:10 config-2.6.28-gentoo
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 2149488 Jan  5 23:10 vmlinuz-2.6.28-gentoo
Any suggestions?

The brave man who uses LILO... I was sticking with lilo years too...

I would suggest using GRUB... its cool when you can use tab to find a disk and a kernel on boot time :D

I have already noticed that especially Gentoo comunity preferes to use GRUB. When I see Grub Error Collection in Installing Gentoo forum I don't understand why. LILO doesn't have so rich collection of errors :D . Finally I found solution. After many attempts I used /mountpoint/boot. I had find it googling around. No man pages, no error collection. Just the experience of the one of us. Related part of lilo.conf
Code:
 image = /boot/kernel-2.6.27-gentoo-r7
        root = /dev/sdb5
        label = Gentoo
        read-only


image = /funtoo/boot/vmlinuz-2.6.28-gentoo
        root = /dev/sdb7
        label = Funtoo
        read-only
I was very surprised at the fast startup when booted Funtoo. OpenRC makes a good job I think.

I agree. On my thinkpad the boot time difference between ~x86(using openRC) and X86(not using OpenRC) was very noticable.
