Hi there. I am having trouble deciding which stage files to copy across, during my GRUB installation.
I have two partition types on my system:
ext1 - boot partition
ext3 - root partition
From the LFS book:
The i386-pc directory contains a number of *stage1_5 files, different ones for different file systems. Review the files available and copy the appropriate ones to the /boot/grub directory. Most users will copy the e2fs_stage1_5 and/or reiserfs_stage1_5 files.
So do I need to just copy the e2fs_stage1_5 file? How come there is no e3fs file?
A friend advised that I copy all files in the directory, but as my goal is to build a minimal system, I only want to do this if there is a definite advantage.
Can anyone make a recommendation? I would also like to know what others have done in this situation.
