Re: kernel-package and Lilo
I now have fixed the postinst script so that it first runs a
test using lilo -t > /tmp/lilo_log.$$; and then runs lilo proper. If
an error occurs, it prints something to the tune of:
There was an error with running lilo in test mode, a log is
available in file /tmp/lilo_log.39678. Please edit /etc/lilo.conf
manually and re-run lilo, or make other arrangements to boot
Please hit return to continue
And waits there till you hit return. This should handle most problems
mentioned here ...
