Description edwinh 2003-10-03 14:40:52 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4.1) Gecko/20030926

Description of problem:
> rpm -ql memtest86-3.0-1
/usr/lib/memtest86/memtest86
/usr/share/doc/memtest86-3.0
/usr/share/doc/memtest86-3.0/README

The executable should go into /boot, not /usr.

If / or /boot is a separate filesystem, the above can't be added to grub without
specifying a different partition just for the memtest section.


Also, maybe a %post that does an auto-magic grub entry like the kernels do would
be nice (although grubby might have to be taught about it.)





Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
memtest86-3.0-1

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install memtest86 rpm with / or /boot being separate
2. try to use :)

memtest86+ adds a nice little script for adding it to the grub config.
