Description Karl-Olov Serrander 2004-06-16 05:43:03 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040510

Description of problem:
When i do:
grubby --add-kernel=/boot/vmlinuz.fc1 --initrd=/boot/initrd.fc1
--title="Reinst TEST" --args="ks:nfs:serverpath"

the --args="ks:nfs:serverpath" is applied to lines other than the
kernel i specified.

This does not work in FC2 either, but worked in RH9.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. grubby --add-kernel=/boot/vmlinuz.fc1 --initrd=/boot/initrd.fc1
--title="Reinst TEST" --args="ks:nfs:serverpath"

Actual Results:  I get the following in my /boot/grub/grub.conf:
title Reinst TEST
        kernel /vmlinuz-fc1 ks:nfs:serverpath
        initrd /initrd-fc1
title Fedora Core (2.6.6-1.435)
        root (hd0,0)
        kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.6-1.435 ro root=LABEL=/ quiet
        initrd /initrd-2.6.6-1.435.img
title Fedora Core (2.6.6-1.427)
        root (hd0,0)
        kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.6-1.427 ro root=LABEL=/ quiet
        initrd /initrd-2.6.6-1.427.img
title Fedora Core (2.6.5-1.358)
        root (hd0,0)
        kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.5-1.358 ro root=LABEL=/ quiet
        initrd /initrd-2.6.5-1.358.img

Expected Results:  Only title "kernel /vmlinuz-fc1" should have

This seems to work for me here with current grubby (mkinitrd-4.0.1,
although it hasn't changed since fc2).

Can you verify that it's definitely broken with the mkinitrd shipped
in FC2?  If so, include both your original grub.conf, the one you get
after it modifies it and the command line you used.

Comment 3 Karl-Olov Serrander 2004-08-05 02:40:20 EDT
For me it is broken in FC2 too, ok in FC3t1. see attached file
Comment 4 Jeremy Katz 2004-08-10 13:55:26 EDT
Rebuilding the FC2 package with the current devel compiler makes the
problem go away so it looks like it's probably some subtle compiler
bug getting tickled.  Since it's fixed with gcc 3.4, closing accordingly
