Description Gerald Teschl 2001-08-07 11:07:07 UTC
I just did a ks installation on an ide box without /boot partition.
anaconda gave no errors but upon reboot no boot manager was present!

A littel inspection showed a lilo.conf with a "linear" option but no "lba32"
option and lilo naturally refused to install without the lba32 option.

Don't you have to specify this with some-as-of-yet-unknown-but-present kickstart

Comment 2 Jeremy Katz 2001-08-07 19:44:34 UTC
There is a flag to force this (--lba32) but we should also try to detect it and
stick it in there if it looks like it's needed and we think the bios supports lba32

And now it's done in CVS
