Re: Still with us -- Re: Bug#684265: (installation-reports: yaboot.conf missing existing root partitions -- sources.list still has deb cdrom from installation)

The first problem noted in bug#684265 is still there -- the installer still does not put the existing root partitions into the generated yaboot.conf.

When I installed os-prober and ran it on the installed system, it found and listed the existing root partitions, as expected. So the problem is in the installer, not os-prober...

Attached is a (hopefully) relevant extract from the installation syslog file.




I'd love to see if I can figure out what's causing this and work up a patch, but I have no clue as to where to begin.

Can somebody please show me a pointer to the code in the installer where this is done?
