[System:Utility] mbr package

MBR is a handy little utility that installs an MBR that allows you to select a partition (or floppy) to boot from.   I normally put lilo or grub on the Linux  partition and then use MBR to select which partition to boot from (Windows or Linux or ...).  That way I don't have to worry about complex bootloader configurations.

PKBUILD:

# Contributor: Chris Osgood <archlinux at functionalfuture.com>
pkgname=mbr
pkgver=1.1.5
pkgrel=1
pkgdesc="MBR boot utility allows arbitrary boot partition selection."

license="GPL"
source=(http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~neilt/$pkgname/$pkgname-$pkgver.tar.gz)
md5sums=('42ff26d7c7d58bfa0d9fa9a0b311f738')

build() {
  cd $startdir/src/$pkgname-$pkgver
  ./configure --prefix=/usr
  make || return 1
  make prefix=$startdir/pkg/usr install
}
