One thing that complicate having many frugal installs are that they look for same filname
and take the first they find. The programmer didn't see any need to make it related to a
unicque indentifier for the version. It look for a file and even if it beong to another prog
it just take it. Which goes wrong.
One solution is to open the file and rename an file ending in the .gz name.
Described here from goblinx forum.
Not the most elegant solution and only works for that set up.
I need a better way to handle such. A more consistent that we can have in future.
I know nothing about computers but I think a kind of added program that keep a catalog
of the installed programs and point to the files needed and which monitor the search
and redirect it if it find the wrong file by comparing in its database.
If don't match look further don't use this one again in this search.
It should not be necessary to have many partitions. Just one should be needed.
MBR should not be corrupted. Here is how he describe the solution.
Yes, it is really nice. I now have SLAX-5.0.6, Goblinx-1.2 and Goblinx-mini-1.2.1 in hda3, hda5, hda6 respectively. Each has renamed livecd.sgn. hda3 has livecd.sgs, hda5 has livecd.sgn (as usual), hda6 has livecd.sgm
Modifying initrd.gz is simply a matter of gunzip, hexedit two characters, gzip
