Thoughts on cross-posting & reporting it.

Posted 09-19-2011 at 12:08 PM by archtoad6

This was inspired by a recent triple post, & was originally going to be posted in the unclosed duplicate thread. As I got to the end of writing it, I realized that I was becoming guilty of "piling on" & decided to place this here in my blog instead.

<New User>,

Back to the drawing board

grub-install --root-directory=/boot
failed too, as it installed in memory.
