Description Alexandre Oliva 2005-04-19 18:30:55 EDT
I've just mentioned in bug 105598 how I ended up missing grub for a rescue
session (/ and /boot were in a raid 1 device that became degraded), and how I
wished the rescue image contained grub itself, instead of relying on grub from
the installed image.
Comment 1 Ted Kaczmarek 2005-09-20 13:07:00 EDT
How do you even get grub-install to work like this?
I am stymied by this, grub-install  want's the stage1 file in /usr which doesn't
haven't and can't be created on RO file system.
Comment 2 Alexandre Oliva 2006-01-13 10:42:01 EST
Well, it works for me, but I didn't try grub-install, only the grub binary
itself.  Anyhow, the rescuecd *still* doesn't contain grub, so if things get
messed up and you happen to be trying to recover from the loss of a disk
containing raid members, you're just screwed.  I really hope Red Hat Enterprise
Linux is better in this regard.

Done, grub added to i386 rescue image.
