Description Tomasz Torcz 2007-06-19 10:29:01 UTC
Description of problem:
When installing Fedora on first disk/partition, with Solaris 10 installed on
second, Solaris isn't added to autogenerated GRUB menu.
It is sad, because: 1) OpenSolaris is as free system as Fedora, yet
Anaconda will only add propietary Windows system to grub menu
2) both Solaris and Fedora use GRUB bootlader

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
FC6, F7

How reproducible:
Always


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install F7 on system with Solaris already installed and configured.

Actual results:
Boot menu show only Fedora.

Expected results:
Boot menu should show Fedora and Solaris.

Additional info:
menu.lst from Solaris looks like this:

title Solaris 10 6/06 s10x_u2wos_09a X86
  root (hd1,0,a)
  kernel /platform/i86pc/multiboot
  module /platform/i86pc/boot_archive

title Solaris failsafe
  root (hd1,0,a)
  kernel /boot/multiboot kernel/unix -s
  module /boot/x86.miniroot-safe

Comment 1 Bug Zapper 2008-05-14 13:11:40 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 7 is nearing the end of life. Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 7. It is Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 'version' of '7'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 7's end of life.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 7 is end of life. If you would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this bug. If you are unable to change the version, please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes bugs or makes them obsolete. If possible, it is recommended that you try the newest available Fedora distribution to see if your bug still exists.

Please read the Release Notes for the newest Fedora distribution to make sure it will meet your needs:
http://docs.fedoraproject.org/release-notes/

The process we are following is described here: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/HouseKeeping

Comment 2 Tomasz Torcz 2008-06-13 13:18:57 UTC
I've installed Fedora 9 on the same server, with Solaris 10 installed on second
drive. Solaris installation haven't been added to Fedora's GRUB menu. Therefore,
this bug is still unfixed.

Comment 4 Bug Zapper 2009-07-14 16:08:23 UTC
Fedora 9 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-07-10. Fedora 9 is 
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further 
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of 
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
