I tried the build part (remotely, so I didn't test the install
I got rawhide to install to a spare partition this evening, but I elected
not to write the MBR - that way I can still boot into the previous F8 just fine.
The new partition is labelled /1 and should be mounted as / - I can mount that
partition from the old F8 partition and look at the files - it looks OK -
I have a /boot directory and it contains a vmlinuz file and an initrd file, but
when configuring the grub.conf on the F8 partition to look at the new boot area
it does not boot... instead I get :
Booting 'F9 Rawhide'
Filesystem type is ext2fs, partition type 0x83
Error 2: Bad file or directory type
Press any key to continue...
The system hangs at this point -
So I wonder if I have done something dumb or is today's rawhide not bootable?
