stuck at lilo read-only file system error
I am stuck with lilo failing with the read-only system error and so far nothing that I have found on the web has helped.
- using a machine which had Ubuntu Intrepid installed on the HDD
- booted off of a BT3 live CD
- used QTparted to delete the ubuntu partions
- went successfully through every step of the tut until lilo
right now when I try to boot off of the HDD, GRUB loader throws an error (15) and that's it.
Lilo comes back with:
Fatal: creat /boot/map~: Read-only file system
can somebody help me with this please?
PS: I don't intend to use the laptop for anything else so BT3 should use the whole HDD. no need for any other partions etc.

did you make sure everything in the lilo was spelled correctly? Had a problem similar to this ( i'm guessing it was ) it turned out that there was a mistyped command in there.

thx for the reply.
I figured it out a few minutes ago. Basically everything was spelled right, but I screwed up with QTparted. so once I wiped out everything properly this time and followed the tut, it worked like a charm
