Bug#423109: grub-installer: Does not work with symlinks in fstab
When experimenting with scripts to create persistent device names in
debian-installer, I found that grub-installer creates an incorrect
configuration if symlinks are used in /target/etc/fstab.
For instance, with a fstab like this:
/dev/disk/by-id/ata-FUJITSU_MHV2100A-NTXYZ-part2 / ext3 defaults 0 0
/dev/disk/by-id/ata-FUJITSU_MHV2100A-NTXYZ-part1 /boot ext3 defaults 0 0
grub-installer will create a menu.lst with filepaths that include the
/boot components even though it shouldn't.
It would be nice if symlinks would be supported.
