Description Chris Lalancette 2007-09-12 15:48:15 EDT
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #252957 +++

The long and short of this bug is that the code we currently have in pygrub
fails to completely parse the elilo.conf.  Additionally, it contains a bug where
if there is no "append" line at all in an "image", it will cause pygrub to
stacktrace.  Both of these are fixed by the following upstream changeset:


Which should be easy to backport to RHEL-5.
