15 <title>Installing PALO</title>
16 <body>
17
18 <p>
19 On the PA-RISC platform, the boot loader is called palo. You may need to
20 emerge it on your machine first.
21 </p>
22
23 <pre caption="Installing palo">
24 # <i>emerge palo</i>
25 </pre>
26
27 <p>
28 You can find the configuration file in <path>/etc/palo.conf</path>. Here is a
29 sample configuration:
30 </p>
31
32 <pre caption = "/etc/palo.conf example">
33 --commandline=2/kernel-2.6.16.18-pa11 root=/dev/sda4
34 --recoverykernel=/vmlinux.old
35 --init-partitioned=/dev/sda
36 </pre>
37
38 <p>
39 The first line tells palo the location of the kernel and which boot parameters
40 it must use. <c>2/kernel-2.6.16.18-pa11</c> means the kernel named
41 <c>/kernel-2.6.16.18-pa11</c> resides on the second partition. Beware, the
42 path to the kernel is relative to the boot partition, not to the root
43 partition.
44 </p>
45
46 <p>
47 The second line indicates which recovery kernel to use. If it is your
48 first install and you do not have a recovery kernel, please comment this
49 out. The third line indicates on which disk palo will reside.
50 </p>
51
52 <p>
53 When configuration is done, just run <c>palo</c>.
54 </p>
55
56 <pre caption = "Applying the PALO configuration">
57 # <i>palo</i>
58 </pre>
59
60 <p>
61 Now continue with <uri link="#reboot">Rebooting the System</uri>.
62 </p>

68 <subsection>
69 <body>
70
71 <p>
72 Exit the chrooted environment and unmount all mounted partitions. Then type in
73 that one magical command you have been waiting for: <c>reboot</c>.
74 </p>
75
76 <pre caption="Exiting the chroot, unmounting all partitions and rebooting">
77 # <i>exit</i>
78 cdimage ~# <i>cd</i>
79 cdimage ~# <i>umount /mnt/gentoo/boot /mnt/gentoo/dev /mnt/gentoo/proc /mnt/gentoo</i>
80 cdimage ~# <i>reboot</i>
81 </pre>
82
83 <p>
84 Of course, don't forget to remove the bootable CD, otherwise the CD will be
85 booted again instead of your new Gentoo system.
86 </p>
87
88 <p>
89 Once rebooted in your Gentoo installation, finish up with <uri
90 link="?part=1&amp;chap=11">Finalizing your Gentoo Installation</uri>.
