Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 208273
No facility to change grub alone.
Last modified: 2007-11-16 20:14:54 EST
Description of problem:
If grub is installed in the wrong boot-sector by mistake, during an otherwise
successful full install, there is no way to correct this without a complete
repeat of the install - all 4 CDs. This is because the message "No kernel
packages have been changed so your grub will not be altered" (or some such) is
issued, despite changes to the grub configuration being offered (and made)
That seems to me to be plainly a bug...
I have experienced it twice now, once with Fedora5 and once with RHEL4U4 on
servers with non-standard boot-sequences.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): N/A
Steps to Reproduce:
1. On a good system, boot on the install CD1 used originally.
2. Choose "upgrade" and add an extra grub option and/or change boot-drive
3. Complete "upgrade" - note message.
Changes NOT effected.
grub only to be changed
