Description Eli 2004-03-02 22:30:52 EST
From Bugzilla Helper: 
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Konqueror/3.1; Linux) 
Description of problem: 
I am using Fedora Core 1 on a remote system, and upgraded the kernel 
using yum.  I want it to boot the new kernel for the next boot only.  
Based on a bit of Googling and then looking at the source, 
specifically grub-0.91-bootonce.patch. 
savedefault needs to be documented. 
/sbin/grub --help 
grub> help 
man grub 
info grub 
do not mention the 'savedefault' command. 
grub> help savedefault 
Displays a helpful message.  Yay!  But if you know to ask for that 
help, then, um, you don't really need the help.  *doh* 
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 
How reproducible: 
Steps to Reproduce: 
1.  # /sbin/grub 
2.  grub> help 
3.  *No mention of savedefault* 
Actual Results:  No mention of the savedefault command in any help 
or documentation that I could find. 
Expected Results:  I expected the command to be documented.

I /think/ this patch should do what I want.  HOWEVER, this is untested,
because an rpmbuild --rebuild of the grub-0.93-7 source rpm fails. *sigh*
Once I finish this bug report, I'll report that one too.

info grub --index-search=savedefault

There are lots of commands not listed on the BUILTIN_HELP_LIST. It's a
matter of choice.
grep -B 2 BUILTIN grub-0.93/stage2/builtins.c|less

I could build grub with and without your patch.
$ rpmbuild -ba grub.spec > stdout.txt 2> stderr.txt && echo $?

Closing as "not a bug".

Log of grub build failure

$ rpm-build --rebuild grub-0.93-7.src.rpm > grub-rebuild 2>&1; echo $?

Find the build log failure attached.  Perhaps there is a build dependency

Originally reported against FC1.
In FC3, I was able to --rebuild the grub srpm.
