I just accidentally deleted my kernel on /boot directory and when I restarted my server, grub shows file not found. How do I recover my kernel files? Any info would be appreciated. thanks.

you said you made a boot disk and you still cant boot up?


and you have tried using the boot disk?

im not sure exactly if the kernel gets copied
to the floppy for a boot disk

or if it just looks for the kernel in the /boot directory

if the kernel is not on the floppy disk you might
have to re-install


you can if you re-install just do an upgrade and it should
fix everything....you might have to go back
and update some packages but at least you shouldnt
loose any data....

can you not boot up from the CD and then get a kernel from kernel.org or the CD, put it in /boot, make sure it's linked in /etc/lilo.conf, then run /sbin/lilo and reboot ?

i am not giving a solution..
but when u boot in to linux as linux single
the init process is not started.so we can pass arguments to grub..by editing the line..and putting at the end "single" word.but if anyone can point out how to make this grub to boot from floppy.
