Sorry.  An earlier version of memtest86+ did have it, but I was told
to remove it from %post because it would fail during anaconda install
where /boot/grub/grub.conf does not exist.

/usr/sbin/memtest-setup was included to automatically configure your
grub.conf.  Uninstall of memtest86+ removes that menu entry too.

Comment 2 Warren Togami 2004-12-23 23:05:40 UTC
On second thought...
Jeremy, would you accept it if memtest86+ edited /boot/grub/grub.conf
only if it exists in %post, otherwise do nothing?

Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2004-12-24 15:45:13 UTC
And then you'll get bugs about differing behvaior when it's installed
by the installer versus not.

Comment 4 Warren Togami 2005-01-01 21:49:06 UTC
Alrighty.  WONTFIX unless someone has a better idea.
