Description Marek Goldmann 2011-10-15 06:38:50 EDT
Created attachment 528314 [details] Improved devmapper for grub2 patch Description of problem: The current version of GRUB2 has known issues with devmapper when using with loopback devices. It was reported upstream in this bug: http://savannah.gnu.org/bugs/?27737 The issue was fixed in upstream bzr repository in revision 3302. I cherry-picked the commit and tested it - works nicely. I'm attaching the patch for F16 branch of grub2.

Comment 2 Joey Boggs 2011-10-17 15:39:36 EDT
This patch wfm installing grub to a /dev/mapper device now bumped priority since patch is a blocker for me in ovirt-node

Is there any chance of this getting into Fedora 16 relatively soon after release? Thanks
Comment 7 Alan Pevec 2011-11-08 17:14:23 EST
Possible dup of bug 742226 ? Joey, Marek, does grub2-1.99-12.fc16 work, it seems to include Improve-devmapper-support.patch ?
Comment 8 Joey Boggs 2011-11-08 20:44:20 EST
looks like grub2-1.99-12.fc16 does work for ovirt-node install marek, may want to retest now and see for your case
