Bug#383740: quik-installer incorrectly allows separate root and /boot

Daniel Dickinson-5
Package: quik-installer
Severity: normal


Due to a bug in the quik manpage stating that root and /boot can be on
different partitions quik-installer was 'fixed' to allow installation
of quik when /boot and root were not the same partition (but on the
same disk).  This is incorrect as testing booting with a separate boot
and /root fails with an inode error, while installing with /boot on
root works.  quik-installer therefore needs to be reverted to
insisting on using the same partition for root and /boot.

Hi,

quoting from #383739:

"quik just mounts 1 ext2 partition and reads etc/quik.conf, loads kernel
and initrd from the pathnames indicated in quik.conf. So if you want a
split /boot and root, you need to put your kernel(s) in /boot and put
quik.conf in /boot/etc/quik.conf."

And quik-installer does exactly this.


regards,
        Holger

That what it is *supposed* to do.  It doesn't work, which is why I have
filed the bug report on #383739 and this one.  If it is supposed to
work it needs to be fixed.

Ah. You should have said this direcly in your bug reports and not only in the
second reply to it ;-)

Reopening the bug so that this does not get forgotten - but fixing 383739 is
the proper action to do.
