Package: grub
Version: 0.95+cvs200406
Severity: important

I have a Debian stable on /dev/hda
I installed a Debian testing on /dev/hdb
I agreed for GRUB to take charge and translate automatically the LILO

I got the following message:

Booting 'Linux (on /dev/hda5)'
root (hd0,4)
 Filesystem type is ext2fs, partition type 0x83
 kernel /vmlinuz root=/dev/hda4 ro

Error 15: File not found

Press any key to continue...

when I selected the following entry:

# This entry automatically added by the Debian installer for an existing
# linux installation on /dev/hda5.
title           Linux (on /dev/hda5)
root            (hd0,4)
kernel          /vmlinuz root=/dev/hda5 ro
initrd          /boot/initrd.img-2.4.18-k7

I corrected it as follows to make it work:

# This entry automatically added by the Debian installer for an existing
# linux installation on /dev/hda5. + corrected by SBI
title           Linux (on /dev/hda5)
root            (hd0,0)
kernel          /vmlinuz-2.4.18-k7 root=/dev/hda5 ro 
initrd          /initrd.img-2.4.18-k7

These are the relevant lines in the /etc/fstab file of my /dev/hda

# <file system> <mount point>   <type>  <options>                       <dump>  <pass>
/dev/hda5       /               ext2    defaults,errors=remount-ro      0       1
/dev/hda1       /boot           ext2    rw                              0       2

This was especially annoying as the newly installed Debian testing was not fully functional...

I can send you my /dev/hda /etc/lilo.conf file if you need it.

   [ Joey Hess ]
   * Patch from VMiklos to sed off (hdn,n) from the front of a kernel path,
     as seen in SuSE grub configs. Closes: #258623 although this is fixed
     imprefectly since it assumes stripping the string is enough.
   * Patch from VMiklos to not require an initrd be specified in the grub
   * Patch from VMiklos to add --mounted option to linux-boot-prober.
     May not be useful for d-i but in other situations including for the
     Frugalware installer.
   [ Frans Pop ]
   * When parsing a lilo configuration, dereference symbolic links. Not doing
     this will break booting the old OS if the link was in / and there was a
     separate /boot partition. And grub in general prefers full paths.
     Closes: #259825.
   * Use environment variable to pass --mounted option to lower level scripts
     instead of perpetuating the parameter.
   * Add myself to uploaders.
