/sbin/grubby: double free or corruption (out)
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:25 EST
Description of problem:
I did an update of a FC5T3 system using yum. When the update process got to
installing the new kernel and started the grubby process - I got an error. I am
attaching the output of the console.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
rpm -qa | grep kern
rpm -qa | grep mkini
I do think that during the update - there was a new mkinitrd version as well.
How reproducible: The new kernel has not been installed. If given instructions -
I can try to prepare a scenario to check if this bug occurs regularly
I have attached the log of the console. If you need further info - I will try to

The console log during the yum update process
I am seeing that, too - with slightly different behaviour though. The kernel
package is installed, all the files are there, only /boot/grub/grub.conf is left
The problem with my grubby is exacly the same as the comment #2 by Pawel Salek -
rpm installs the files and then the install scripts call /sbin/grubby via
/sbin/new-kernel-pkg. Then I get the doublefree bug and grub's conf file is left
unedited - no entry for the new kernel.
Thank you for the bug report. This particular bug has already been reported
into our bug tracking system, but please feel free to report any further
