Hi!

During the install of the latest snapshot, there was an error from bash, complaining about /sbin/lilo not being present, but it did not seem to affect the install.

Right after the install, there are extra files created on /:

1) a file

Code: Select all

 /1 
, owned by root, and containing a copy of the default icewm menu.
2) a directory

Code: Select all

 /installpkg-ab6ca2a8948a764e5aa6ba6999855cdf/ 
, containing 1 file,

Code: Select all

 ./font_list 
, which contains the list of system fonts.

These "extras" were also created by the previous snapshot. They may be more a form than function issue, though.

Thanks!
