mindi ignores FAILSAFE kernel choice

Reported by: xdelaruelle Owned by: Bruno Cornec
Priority: normal Milestone: 2.2.5
Component: mindi Version: 2.2.4
Severity: normal Keywords:


When I run mindi, it asks me :

"Do you want to use your own kernel to build the boot disk ([y]/n) ?"

I answer it "n", but my own kernel is still used.

Here is a tiny patch against the mindi script of the mindi-2.0.0-1.rhel4.src.rpm package that I downloaded today (11/14) :

fi if [ "$USE_OWN_KERNEL" = "yes" ]; then

Applied to rev [1809] THanks.

Out of curiosity why do you need the failsafe kernel ? Nowadays everybody should be fine with its distro kernel.

comment:3 by xdelaruelle, 17 years ago

I use the failsafe kernel because the kernel of my RHEL4.5 hangs or panics.

You could also use a parallel kernel (previous verion) with the -k option. It's easier.
