Description Joachim Backes 2006-04-04 04:35:02 EDT
Description of problem:

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

How reproducible:
Each time

Steps to Reproduce:
1./sbin/mkbootdisk uses a tail command in the following layout:
 tail +3 /proc/partitions. But the tail command  has does not allow "+3" 
 as option. In FC4, "+3" will be ignored.
Actual results: Error message by mkbootdisk

Additional info:--
Comment 1 Peter Vrabec 2006-04-04 09:13:43 EDT
I think it should be: 
tail -n +3 /proc/partitions 
Comment 2 Peter Vrabec 2006-04-05 06:57:16 EDT
fixed in mkbootdisk-1.5.3-1
