Description Mike Yates 2006-09-27 11:02:32 EDT
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

How reproducible: 

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.
Actual results:
Changes NOT effected.

Expected results:
grub only to be changed

Additional info:
I do hope this bug is not repeated - your webpage keeps saying "Invalid 
product = '' use BACK to try again" even though it says "Product: Red Hat 
Enterprise Linux", "Version: 4.4" etc at the top of this page!
