Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 18072
boot.img does not fit on a floppy
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:28:52 EDT
The boot.img file provided on the Redhat v7.0 Linux CD is too big to fit on
[root@watchman images]# dd if=boot.img of=/dev/fd0
dd: /dev/fd0: No space left on device
1441+0 records in
1440+0 records out
The dd command line syntax is assumed - the README on the CD does not
explain how to create a boot disk from the image files.
The system creating the bootdisk is dd from a standard Redhat v6.2
Brock please verify.
Woa - the Problem Lay Between Chair And Keyboard(TM).
This is the bug you get when you try and put a Linux image on a double density
disk! I didn't think any still existed...
The problem about the correct dd syntax stands though - it is missing from the
README file, so it's never clear what block size to use (if at all).
(Returns and sits in corner with dunce cap on)
No problem :)
