Issue #26 resolved

Kernel filenames keep growing with every time we install lilo

Moises Henriquez
created an issue

When the installer installs lilo, it copies other OS's kernels into /boot/tamu. To accomplish this, it relies on linux-boot-prober proving the path to the kernel, and then copying that file to /boot/tamu and renaming it as "origninal_file_name-sdxx" where sdxx is the partition it is found on.

This creates a problem when it finds a kernel named "linux-2.19.2-sda3" because the resulting file name will be "linux-19.2-sda3-sda3"

To avoid this, simply rename the file "vmlinuz-sdxx" every time.
