Hey everyone! Not too long ago, I made the decision that I really dislike GRUB. It's overly heavy and unnecessary. So, I made the switch to extlinux. Much simpler, does everything I need and works like a charm (not to mention, much faster).
However, I would like to preupgrade to Fc17, and I have never done this on a non-GRUB system. Extlinux recognizes paths as relative to /boot, so I have the following so far for the boot line into the installer:
menu label Upgrade to Beefy Miracle
When I boot using this entry, the startup throws an error which causes Dracut to fall into a debug shell. If I am reading it right, it is because I do not have root defined, which in Extlinux is usually done by adding a new line after the kernel line containing "append root=/path/to/root/fs" My problem here is that I've always defined my rootfs using the /dev/mapper setup, and Dracut does not recognize that path when I use it. Does anyone have any experience to help guide me on my way to a successful preupgrade? I would really rather avoid a clean install (so much stuff I'd have to redo).
Thank you in advance for all your help!
All the best,
