Message-Id: <[🔎] 200003281000.FAA19032@pounce.bestnet.org>
From: ericw@bestnet.org
Subject: boot-floppies: lilo.conf refers to /boot instead of /
To: submit@bugs.debian.org
X-Mailer: bug 3.2.10

Package: boot-floppies
Version: 2.2.8
Severity: important

I just did a fresh potato install, then compiled up a custom kernel.

While installing the kernel, I got a message from lilo about ignoring
LinuxOLD.

The lilo.conf file refers to /boot/vmlinuz and /boot/vmlinuz.old

The references should be to /vmlinuz and /vmlinuz.old

I've set the priority to important because this will prevent from being
able to boot back to the old kernel version in case of problems.

I'm including a patch, someone familiar with boot-floppies should look
it over and make sure it makes sense.

Cheers!
Eric
