Re: Have there been changes in the lilo package?

I have solved my problem, and in the interest of having
this particular situation "googleable" for the next
hacker with this problem:

If you have a kernel in your lilo.conf that uses an
initrd= line, and that initrd.gz file is of zero length,
you will get a counter-intuitive error message 

	Fatal: Empty map section.

If this is the case at system build time, there will
be no map or boot.b files created and and placed in
/boot. They appear to be generated in sid and sarge
rather than installed as in woody.
