7.18. Making the Temporary System Bootable

Create an aboot.conf file defining aboot's boot menu:

cat > ${CLFS}/etc/aboot.conf << "EOF"
# Begin /etc/aboot.conf
0:1/boot/clfskernel-3.4.17 root=/dev/sda1
# End /etc/aboot.conf

If you already have aboot installed on your target system, you do not need to reinstall it. aboot is just a chain loader and has no bearing on the system build.

After you get the build copied to the system that it will boot from, you will need to issue the following command:

swriteboot -f3 /dev/sda /boot/bootlx
abootconf /dev/sda 1
