Actually, since this is my first message here, let me yell: Hello World!
Now, the problem:
I got a Debian 4.0 Etch webserver, with AMD Athlon 64 X2 4200+ Dual Core, 2GB of RAM and 2 300GB SATA disks.
I've been "playing" with it for the last week or two (i'm no guru, just an ad hoc admin) and, although i'm satisfied with how everything works, it seems that have a problem:
First it looked like I'm unable to install any of the "virtual server" software. I tried OpenVZ, Xen and Linux Vserver and with all of them i get the same symptoms:
Installation passes ok, i get the "installation successful" message, but when i reboot -it doesn't work.
I noticed that when i enter the "uname -r" command after reboot, it shows the same kernel which was before the installation.
I checked the /boot dir and saw that all of the image files are there.
Finally, i checked lilo.conf and i saw that it remains unchanged...
This is the lilo.conf (it's same before and after install):
Here's the contents of /boot dir after the installation of vserver (i prefer OpenVZ, but this is just a copy/paste after one of the tries):
As you can see, the image files are there...
I would try to change the lilo.conf manually and add the lines needed to boot the new kernel, but i'm away from the computer and so i depend on SSH i.e. if the system doesn't boot, i'm lost...
Can anyone help me to diagnose this problem?
