Description Reuben Farrelly 2005-10-08 23:03:25 EDT
Something appears to have broken with grub, such that the current version in
rawhide is no longer able to install a boot loader using grub-install.


With grub-0.95-15 this is what happens:

[root@typhoon ~]# grub-install /dev/sdc
No suitable drive was found in the generated device map,
reverting to backed up copy.
mv: cannot stat `/boot/grub/device.map.backup': No such file or directory
[root@typhoon ~]#

With grub-0.95-13 installation looks like this:

[root@typhoon reuben]# grub-install /dev/sdc
Installation finished. No error reported.
This is the contents of the device map /boot/grub/device.map.
Check if this is correct or not. If any of the lines is incorrect,
fix it and re-run the script `grub-install'.

(fd0)   /dev/fd0
(hd0)   /dev/sda
(hd1)   /dev/sdc
[root@typhoon reuben]#

Is this better in FC5 test2?
Comment 2 Reuben Farrelly 2006-01-31 15:45:34 EST
Yes.  It works fine now, (albeit slowly).

I'll mark this one as fixed.
