Description Matt Domsch 2008-05-02 15:05:12 EDT
Description of problem:
UEFI systems are dual-mode boot capable: both legacy BIOS, with grub.conf in
/boot/grub/grub.conf,  and UEFI boot, with grub.conf in /boot/efi/grub.conf or
deeper.  Grubby should install/update grub.conf in both if both are present.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Comment 1 Peter Jones 2008-05-02 15:20:45 EDT
Instead, we should make booty install an MBR loader on EFI systems with
/boot/efi/EFI/redhat/grub.conf as the config file.  (I've changed the Summary
here as well.)
Comment 2 Bug Zapper 2008-05-14 06:32:56 EDT
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.

Comment 3 Chris Ward 2009-04-06 05:30:18 EDT

This bug appears to pertain to an important F11 feature, EFI, which the Fedora Community will be testing in an upcoming Fedora Test Day. Your participation in the action would be greatly appreciated!

Comment 4 Bug Zapper 2009-06-09 20:34:41 EDT
This message is a reminder that Fedora 9 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 9.  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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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 '9'.

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 9'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 9 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 to the applicable version.  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.

The process we are following is described here: 
Comment 5 Matt Domsch 2009-06-09 23:53:22 EDT
Is the expected behavior correct in Fedora 11 now?
Comment 6 Bug Zapper 2009-07-14 12:09:21 EDT
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no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further 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.
