Package: debian-installer
Severity: normal


This report may be more appropriate for grub, but I'm not sure.

When configuring dual boot with Fedora Core 3, the Sarge Debian install adds
the lines


# This is a divider, added to separate the menu items below from the Debian
# ones.
title           Other operating systems:

# This entry automatically added by the Debian installer for an existing
# linux installation on /dev/hda2.
title           Fedora Core release 3 (Heidelberg) (on /dev/hda2)
root            (hd0,0)
kernel          /vmlinuz-2.6.9-1.667 root=/dev/hda2 

to /boot/grub/menu.lst.

However, this kernel is an initrd image, so that does not work. The
following works (but may be sub-optimal).

title           Fedora Core release 3 (Heidelberg) (on /dev/hda2)
root            (hd0,0)
kernel          /vmlinuz-2.6.9-1.667 root=/dev/hda2 ro
initrd          /initrd-2.6.9-1.667.img

The contents of /boot on the Fedora Core installation appear below.

I'm fairly certain this is fixed in current versions of the installer as 
the same issue was reported in #399882, but in that report it was also 
confirmed to be fixed with an Etch image.

Closing against current version of os-prober, though it was probably 
resolved some time back.
