Description Marina Zhurakhinskaya 2008-11-07 16:36:26 EST
Description of problem:
After letting PackageKit do the upgrade with the latest packages for Rawhide, my system wasn't booting due to a failing GRUB installation.

Booting with a rescue image for F9, doing
chroot /mnt/sysimage
grub-install /dev/sda
and rebooting fixed the problem.

Reviewing gpk-log showed that the new kernel packages (79.fc10) were installed yesterday. Unlike most other PackageKit updates that are in the Updated category, the kernel updates are in the Installed category. I still have 68.fc10 kernel packages installed on the system alongside 79.fc10 packages.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kernel 79.fc10

How reproducible:
Don't know if it would show up after updates on other systems.

Steps to Reproduce:
Actual results:
system doesn't boot, GRUB failure

Expected results:
system boots

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 10 development cycle.
Changing version to '10'.

More information and reason for this action is here:

What "GRUB failure"? What did you see on the screen?

Perhaps the same as described in bug 450143?
Comment 3 Marina Zhurakhinskaya 2009-06-01 13:22:45 EDT
Yes, I was seeing "GRUB _"  (underscore being a blinking cursor) on the screen, just as described in the bug you pointed to. Based on that bug descriptions and suggested solution (booting with a rescue image and running grub-install /dev/sda
), this bug looks like its duplicate.
