In step 6 should it read Install a bootloader instead of Install and configure? Configuration should be made once in chroot. At least that's the case with syslinux. The command /usr/sbin/syslinux-install_update -iam should be issued from within chroot to succeed. --Maevius (talk) 07:33, 17 July 2012 (UTC)

I took the liberty and edited the whole page. If someone could write a line or two about grub2 configuration that'd be great. --Maevius (talk) 09:10, 17 July 2012 (UTC)

  • Thanks for your contribution, but the point of this page is to not become another Beginner's guide. It's meant to be a concise checklist of things to be done. Falconindy (talk) 13:33, 17 July 2012 (UTC)
  • Yeah, I thought about that... What if we moved it in its current state somewhere else and then revert this one as it were before?--Maevius (talk) 18:28, 17 July 2012 (UTC)

Just wanted to check, grub is loaded as part of base packages so there is no need to load it again. Simply install syslinux or configure grub. Mr Green 17 July 2012 (UTC)

From the section Configure the bootloader in Configure the system: Shouldn't you edit the syslinux.cfg to point to the right / (root) partition? Or why don't we just put a link to the corresponding section of the syslinux page there? Guelfi (talk) 09:18, 21 July 2012 (UTC)

  • I'd rather get rid of the mentions of configuring separately. It's weird. Why isn't the installation section sufficient? Falconindy (talk) 12:05, 21 July 2012 (UTC)

/boot and ext4

I thought /boot should not be formatted with ext4. There might be a bug in the decription. --PMay (talk) 12:29, 22 July 2012 (UTC)
