GRUB: New release
I've uploaded a newer iteration of the GRUB package to incoming. I'm
moving it to experimental, as people really should be careful with it,
and the install code is a work in progress (see below).
* New "grubinst" utility allows you to put the boot block on any
* Fancy postinstall script:
+ if /etc/grub.conf exists, it is executed and the script exits
+ otherwise asks if you want to install grub: it asks a few
questions and installs the boot block.
+ If /boot/grub/menu.lst _doesn't_ exist, it generates one from
/boot/vmlinuz-* and appends a sample DOS entry (commented out).
Queries user for append string, etc. (I haven't written a translator
for /etc/lilo.conf, and I'm not insane enough to do that in sh.)
The grubinst program needs testing, particularly I don't know for
sure if it can find menu.lst when you place the boot block on a
The automagic menu.lst doesn't work if /boot is not on the root
grubinst and postinstall don't handle non-primary partitions (although
the installation code on the GRUB command line does work).
Now back to your regularly scheduled deity discussion...
