Yet you said symlinks didn't work? I don't know yet why symlinks and filenames with dash don't work, but creating a file with a dash and creating symlinks to both a filename with dash and without it don't work. No changes with absolute vs. relative symlink either. The changes I've committed today do work on i686 (QEMU), system installation tested. -- Vasiliy
