Description Chris Kloiber 2004-02-19 14:06:10 EST
Description of problem:

Clean ("Custom/Everything") install of FC2/x86_64 on eMachines M6807
laptop. Machine finished install, rebooted and got no grub prompt- it
went straight through to the Windows partition.

Rebooted installer in "linux rescue" chrooted into /mnt/sysimage,
verifyied correctness of /etc/grub.conf then ran:

# grub-install /dev/hda

grub had segfaulted, so no bootloader had been installed.

(Also there is no lilo to use as a workaround, but that's another bug).

What FC2 x86_64 tree?  There isn't a real one right now... and the x86
emulation was broken for a while in the kernel which is probably what
caused this.

Sorry, rawhide-20040219/x86_64 didn't realize it's not live.
