[SOLUTION] grub regression when rebuild it under F7
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:14 EST
Description of problem:
The native F7 grub has regression after rebuild in _native_ (F7) environment.
The graphics module does not compiled due to changes autoreconf --force --
install to just autoconf.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Official F7 grub package.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Rebuild in F7 environment
2. run next
# dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/<hdX> bs=446 count=1 (hdX - your boot device's MBR)
grub> root (hdX,Y) <- put your root partition and device
grub> setup (hdX)
3. After grub is ran switch to command line and try
grub> terminal graphics
Two things to fix this issue:
1. autoconf -> autoreconf --force --install (grub-*graphics.patch does not
patch Makefile.in, but Makefile.am)
2. Add to the grub-*graphics.patch following lines (autotools 1.10

It is mistake here. The F7 uses grub-0.97-13. I'm trying with 0.97-14.
