Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 55494
make install for kernel customization and GRUB fails
Last modified: 2005-10-31 17:00:50 EST
Description of Problem:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Red Hat Linux 7.2 w/ GRUB
2. Follow "Official RH Customization Guide, RHL 7.2" Appendix A: Building
a custom kernel.
3. Section A.1, building a Modularized Kernel, "make install" fails.
Output at the end of "make install" before failure:
+ exec /sbin/install/kernel 2.4.7-10custom bzImage /usrsrc/linux2.4.7-
10/System.map ' '
/etc/lilo.conf: No such file or directory
make : *** [install] Error 1
make : Leaving directory ...
make : *** [install] Error 2
<returns to prompt>
The make process should realize that grub rather than lilo was used and
act accordingly. Instead, when it can't find /etc/lilo.conf - it fails.
This has nothing to do with make.
