Bug Description

Binary package hint: os-prober

os-prober 1.29ubuntu2 [karmic alpha2]

To help test GRUB2, I created installed it in a partition boot sector and chainloaded to it from LILO, my current bootloader. I ended up with rather a lot of stuff in the grub.menu, but one of the entries was obviously copied out of lilo.conf .. but with the kernel command line mangled. lilo.conf had:

image=/boot/vmlinuz
        root="LABEL=hardy-root2"
        label=Linux
        read-only
        initrd=/boot/initrd.img

The new grub.cfg ended up with:

menuentry "Linux (on /dev/mapper/ext-hardy)" {
        insmod lvm
        set root=(ext-hardy)
        search --no-floppy --fs-uuid --set b0403c0c-f2f7-4082-8c93-af9b49d13056
        linux /boot/vmlinuz root=LABEL ro vga=normal
        initrd /boot/initrd.img
}

I guess the second equals confused something. Fortunately there were other entries in the new config that would have booted the system OK, so hardly a show stopper, but it might be nice to tidy up.
