While poking around Google I found a link for an automated Kernel build
and installation script someone has written at
More details at http://www.linuxgazette.com/issue75/piszcz.html
The author claims that the script accurately determines the last bootloader
used to boot the current running kernel. However it detects only grub and lilo.
I looked at the script and the logic is -
1) If lilo config is present and grub config is absent then bootloader = lilo
2) If lilo config is absent and grub config is present then bootloader = grub
3) if lilo config is present and grub config is present then
if "cat /proc/cmdline" contains the string "BOOT_IMAGE"
then bootloader = lilo
else bootloader = grub

really smart. I too tried
# dd if=/dev/hda bs=512 count=1|strings$
and it resulted in
1+0 records in
1+0 records out
Actually in mine i overwrote LILO with GRUB and currently
So it seems WE are still unaware of pointing current
bootloader, isnt it?
