Description Gerald Teschl 2001-08-07 07:07:07 EDT
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 15:44:34 EDT
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
Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2001-08-08 14:05:31 EDT
And now it's done in CVS
