Re: HOWTO: Install Burg Boot Loader

You do not have to compile anything to install Burg. Go to this site http://code.google.com/p/burg/wiki/InstallUbuntu, add the ppa to your sources.list and install Burg using the procedure outlined.

I used that repository as a source only because I read Ubuntu package are not compadible with LMDE. I'm not sure if the binaries work fine but I didn't want to risk it.

I have installed Burg in LMDE via apt-get using the binary ppa



and procedure (for installation in Lucid Lynx) listed in my post above with no problems. In spite of what some posts here say, there are a few Ubuntu apps that are compatible with Debian. This seems to be one of them.

Well i guess this is here for those who want to compile to make sure it works right.

Yeah, I'd tread carefully with anything from the beelzubuntu repos, even if it works initially. If and when Canonical decides to change something they do not worry about and do not test for Debian compatibility. Might work out well in the long haul, might not. A bootloader gone wrong is usually an easy fix, but using their repos certainly isn't a great habit to get into. :wink:

azathoth,

I think you are confusing things. Burg is not a product of Canonical. It is provided by the same people who provide Grub to Ubuntu, Fedora and many other distros.

The ppa is not from or in the Ubuntu repos, it s downloaded from Launchpad. It is the same ppa that crborga recommends downloading to compile Burg. The only difference is he uses the source code file and I recommend adding the binary file to your sources list.

I just feel that compiling something that is already compiled and offered in a binary package from the same source is unnecessary work.

I do wonder if Lucid is the most compatible with Debian Squeeze/testing.

On other forums I have seen posts saying that Lucid packages were too old and Maverick too new.

Hi all,

With debian/testing repository I can't compil burg because of gcc 4.6 bug (i think):

Code: Select all

/home/adidi/burg/burg-1.98+20100623/efiemu/main.c: In function ‘grub_efiemu_prepare’:
/home/adidi/burg/burg-1.98+20100623/efiemu/main.c:288:14: erreur: variable ‘err’ set but not used [-Werror=unused-but-set-variable]
cc1: all warnings being treated as errors

make[1]: *** [efiemu_mod-efiemu_main.o] Erreur 1
make[1]: quittant le répertoire « /home/adidi/burg/burg-1.98+20100623/build/burg-common »
make: *** [build/burg-common] Erreur 2
dpkg-buildpackage: erreur: debian/rules build a produit une erreur de sortie de type 2



Any idea to pass out?
