bootloader-utils-0.1-alt2: configuration options are not read correctly (NOLINK & NOLAUNCH)

You need to
before you can comment on or make changes to this bug.
The file /etc/sysconfig/installkernel describes the options NOLINK &
NOLAUNCH; there is said that one should set them to \"yes\" if he
wants to enable them.
But the script /sbin/installkernel doesn\'t treat these values correctly: it
expects some arguments like \"-n\" rather than \"yes\" as
As a result /sbin/installkernel doesn\'t work correctly when
NOLINK=\"yes\" is set in the config file: it tries to make an InitRD
image for the kernel version \"yes\" instead of the real version and
fails to do so. So no InitRD is created (even when it is needed) and the
installed kernel can\'t be booted.
Set NOLINK=\"yes\" in /etc/sysconfig/installkernel and install a
kernel that requires InitRD on your system.
A patch to fix it is attached.
Sorry for duplicates, re-sent the report many times because got timeouts from
