Description Landon Curt Noll 2002-01-06 09:37:03 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.77 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.2.19-7.0.12 i686)

Description of problem:
The make install rule will fail on a system that uses grub (instead
of lilo) because the /sbin/installkernel command only groks lilo.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.install the 2.4.9-13 kernel source from RH7.2 update on a host that uses
   grub and not lilo (i.e., there is no /etc/lilo.conf file, just
2.make xconfig
3.make dep
4.make all
5.make install

Actual Results:  The make install fails because the lilo command from
/sbin/installkernel only attempts to run lilo.

Expected Results:  The grub-install for /dev/hda (or whatever the primary
boot device) is run.
