Comment 2 JR 2012-06-04 21:35:19 UTC
Is there a build of the applicable patch available in koji (or similar) that I can test against?
Comment 3 Mads Kiilerich 2012-06-12 13:11:26 UTC
This fix can be tested with an unofficial scratch build with a snapshot from bzr: grub2-2.0-0.37.beta6.4462.fc17 at http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=4152623 - please test and report back.
Comment 4 JR 2012-06-28 23:48:43 UTC
I can confirm the packages grub2-2.0-0.37.beta6.fc17.x86_64 grub2-tools-2.0-0.37.beta6.fc17.x86_64 Seem to fix the issue here for me. I pulled these from https://admin.fedoraproject.org/updates.

I see this listed in bodhi as updates-testing-candidate. When will this be pulled in to updates-testing? Thanks!
Comment 6 Fedora End Of Life 2013-07-04 02:37:48 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 17 is nearing its end of life. Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 17. It is Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 'version' of '17'. Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 17's end of life. Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 17 is end of life. If you would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 17's end of life. Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes bugs or makes them obsolete.

Closing this bug as it was fixed and the fix still works. Thanks for the help!
