Description (last modified by mmadia)

makebootable was updated to work with Haiku's new directory layout. Now, makebootable no longer works to make R5 or Zeta partitions bootable. As such, one of the following could be done

-the legacy compatibility options [-alert, -full, -safe] should be dropped from makebootable, as i believe it to be non-functioning. possibly throw an error or warning when those arguments are detected.

-fork makebootable in two. keeping 'makebootable' functioning for R5+Zeta partitions and providing a second binary, eg 'makesysbootable' , which is used with the new directory layout.
