grub-0.97 on pure64 systems

Reported by: Joe Ciccone Owned by: Joe Ciccone
Priority: blocker Milestone: CLFS Standard 1.0.0
Component: BOOK Version: CLFS Standard 1.0.0
Keywords: Cc:


Grub doesn't compile properly on pure64 systems. It depends on a 32bit glibc and optionaly ncurses to build the installer. The dilema is the grub installer links to the stage2 loader preventing the possibility of building the loaders 32bit and the installer 64bit.

grub-0.97 would require much of a re-write for a 64bit only system. This is fixed in r1265 by substituting grub with lilo for x86_64-64. Thanks Ken for updating the book.
