Description Christophe de Dinechin 2017-06-01 13:10:26 UTC
Description of problem:

The page https://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/Fedora/22/html/Multiboot_Guide/GRUB-reinstalling.html shows the following command for re-creating the Fedora boot entry:

  # efibootmgr -c -w -L Fedora -d /dev/sda -p 2 -l \EFI\fedora\shim.efi

I naively copy-pasted that. And it does not work, because of \ not being escaped:

# echo  efibootmgr -c -w -L Fedora -d /dev/sda -p 2 -l \EFI\fedora\shim.efi
efibootmgr -c -w -L Fedora -d /dev/sda -p 2 -l EFIfedorashim.efi

The example should be changed to:

  # efibootmgr -c -w -L Fedora -d /dev/sda -p 2 -l '\EFI\fedora\shim.efi'

I'm closing this bug as part of a Bugzilla cleanup effort. The most likely reason is that the bug has been opened either against a component we no longer publish, or against Release Notes for an EOL release.
