Bug#119825: Wrong boot= line in lilo.conf

Package: boot-floppies
Version: N/A; reported 2001-11-16
Severity: normal

When the install finished, the "Make System Bootable" option created a wrong lilo.conf.

The machine had 2 disks: hdc as the target, hdd as the source. There was nothing on the primary IDE interface. After choosing to install lilo in the MBR, it only offered to install it into hda. Then lilo tried that, but was unsuccesful, so I had to manually edit the config file. The root=/dev/hdc5 line was correct, but the boot=/dev/hda was not. After correcting it to boot=/dev/hdc lilo installed itself succesfully, and the system could boot.

The install disks were downloaded from the 3.0.15-2001-10-18 directory.

Debian Release: testing/unstable
Architecture: i386
