Revision 1.5 - (hide annotations) (download) (as text)
Thu Apr 8 13:02:10 2004 UTC (10 years, 8 months ago) by swift
Branch: MAIN
Changes since 1.4: +3 -3 lines
File MIME type: application/xml
Mental note: never listen to original authors when they suggest to change our
installation instructions. Apparently the use of "grub-install" for Gentoo just
doesn't work period. The forum is filled with people telling that it doesn't
work and I've got mails too. I've mailed the GRUB ppl about this. Anyway, this
reverts the instructions back to the old instructions -- translators can just
run "cvs update -j rev1 -j rev2 hb-install-x86-bootloader.xml" with rev1 and
rev2 the latest and one-before latest revision to revert their changes. Same for
hb-install-amd64-bootloader.xml. I did keep the links to the GRUB manual and FAQ
though so you'll have to readd it after reverting.
