Titel: Dual boot Kanotix and Open SUSE 10.1  BeitragVerfasst am: 06.11.2006, 14:43 Uhr

Greetings from Guelph. Like some others I like to create a spare partition to run different Linux OS'. I tried to create a partition for Kanotix 2006RC-4 to run alongside SUSE10.1, but when Kanotix wrote itself into GRUB it wiped out access to SUSE at boot-time at least as far as I could see.
Can anyone tell how to set up two Linux distros so that you have the choice as to which one you want to run a boot-time? Both will be on the same hard drive.
I really enjoy Kanotix and would love to have it running under a dual boot.
Thank you.

Add the entry for Suse in Kanotix-Grub.

/media/hdxy/boot/grub/menu.lst or /media/sdxy/boot/grub/menu.lst if you have SATA.

If you don't feel confident doing the way suggested you could put the Suse disc in and you should have an option to put Suse grub back on the mbr. Suse may well add Kanotix to the menu 1st but if not it is accessable with yast. If you had put Kanotix grub on the partition not the mbr you could have added it to the Suse grub as that would have remained untouched

GRUB writes the file menu.lst from the root partition into the MBR of your drive. henc ein that file all OSs must be mentioned, that may be some Linux versions, a Windows, or whatever.. Thus you go into grub and root(hd0,1) for example what your suse partition is and then you go setup(hd0) This will write the old SUSE MBR version to boto from! then go into yast and click on bootloader changes! there you add an entry for KNAOTIX which you have copied from the file menu.lst FROM THE KNAOTIX partition which is found in /boot/grub/menu.lst

Then SUSE adds it and all is fine Smilie

Or you can just chainload it

example:

title Your Distro [/boot/vmlinuz26]
root (hd0,10)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz26 root=/dev/hda11 ro
initrd /boot/initramfs-2.6.15-Your Distro.img

would be

title Your distro
chainloader (hd0,11)+1

Thank you all for your generous help. I think at this stage in my Linux learning (10 months) I would feel more comfortable with Titan's suggestion. If I put the Kanotix GRUB on to the Kanotix partition and then use YAST to add it to the MBR, how do I find it on the Kanotix partition to tell YAST about it?

Long time since I used Suse but it is in yast under bootloader, there is an option for yast to look for other OS but if it can't do it automatically there is lots of prompts and help. As Piper says you can also chainload kanotix but only if Kanotix grub is on partition.This can also be through yast All versions of grub give example entries just copy and paste then edit. Just to confuse everybody Grub uses a diferent notation for the drives so hda,1 becomes hdo(0) so assuming you only have two partitions and Suse is on the first and Kanotix on the second The grub entry for Kanotix will be hd0(1). I hope that all makes sense. Once you have done it and see how easy it is just editing the menu 1st of whatever grub is on the mbr is simpler. This is what you might see in the menu 1st

# title Windows 95/98/NT/2000
# root (hd0,0)
# makeactive
# chainloader +1

if Kanotix is on the second partition hda,2 or hd0(1) as grub sees it change the above to

title kanotix
root (hd0,1)
makeactive
chainloader +1

and it should work

It is your root partition of Kanotix, if you have only one for Knaotix, it is that one, there you get into /boot/grub/ and use konqueror to see the file menu.lst! Copy and paste it into YAST window: Yes, from within Suse you look at your extra mounted Kanotix partition and go from there... It is easy... Buddy, of course only the correct section Smilie

Greetings from a fully functional dual-boot Kanotix/SUSE 10.1 system!
The Kanotix community has a great reputation on the internet for being supportive and helpful. You folks just proved it once again!
As my own knowledge and research into Linux grows I hope I can give back someday with code, etc. I have studied computers since COBOL and Fortran in the 80's (OOps, I am dating myself)!
For anyone else reading this, may I recommend two excellent books to help with Kanotix and Linux: Haciking Knoppix (a lot of which applies to Kanotix since it is based on Knoppix) and the Linux Phrasebook, both by Scott Granneman.
Again, Merci!!!

Sorry for the typo. The title of the first book should read Hacking Knoppix.
