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