Description Göran Uddeborg 2000-05-08 11:59:43 UTC
I found a couple of typos in mkbootdisk-1.2.5-3.  There is a "$n" in one
place in the script where I strongly believe you mean "-n".  This isn't
critical, since $n is unset, and the -n flag to "test" is equivalent to no
flag at all.

patches for details.
