I'm using lilo to boot my server.
is it possible to give a command to boot the next time to linux.bak, instead of the normal linux.
I want to test a kernel, and if it goes to kernel panic i just give a reboot and then it has to boot to the normal linux again. Is this possible???
I understand there is a man for it. What i want is a 1 time boot with the new kernel. If it doesn't come online again i reboot it with my reboot switch and it has to use the old profile again. As far as i can see this isn't specified in the lilo man.
Is this option also available with grub
For example, i installed a new kernel, but it goes into kernel panic, how do i boot again in the old kernel after a power reset.
I couldn't find the -R option for grub.
I am also interested to know the grub option similiar to -R in lilo... anyone know?
