re: previously posted dinstall patch
Oops. I had a chance to test the dinstall patch that I posted earler
today. Two problems:
- There shouldn't be two semicolons after the 'mkdir || complain' line
in the first fix.
- The second fix relies on a non-zero return value from dd in the
event of a failure. However, when dd tries to write to a
write-protected floppy, it fails and returns 0.
Can anyone give me a clue? Is there some way to check if dd
successfully created the bootdisk?
