Description Peter Gückel 2009-03-13 01:27:03 EDT
Description of problem:
On a freshly installed x86_64 system (from DVD), anaconda or whatever sets up grub.conf with timeout=5 and hiddenmenu (I have not edited these lines and have only added other OS to the list, and yum has added a couple of kernels), the computer always displays the menu and it never times out. I have to type carriage return to initiate booting of the system.

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

How reproducible:
Install a x86_64 system from DVD and reboot and notice symptoms.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install
2. reboot
3. take action (type <cr>)
Actual results:
The hidden menu is never hidden and the system hangs, waiting for a user response that is not requested.

Expected results:
The menu shoud be hidden, unless a key is pressed before the time-out, and, should automatically boot the default option, namely 0.

Additional info:

This problem also exists on i386. GRUB just sits there waiting for user action instead of counting down and automatically booting the system.
