Description Jonathan Kamens 2009-07-11 22:16:32 EDT
grubby in rawhide says it can't find a suitable template and therefore won't update /boot/grub/grub.conf.

This occurs whether or not dracut is installed (and, incidentally, if grubby is going to rely on dracut, then it should probably have a dependency on it in its spec file, which it apparently doesn't).

Here's what's at the end of my /boot/grub/grub.conf file, which looks perfectly fine and I can't imagine why grubby's having trouble updating (and has had no trouble in the past):

title Fedora (2.6.30-6.fc12.i686.PAE)
	root (hd0,0)
	kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.30-6.fc12.i686.PAE ro root=LABEL=/ hdd=ide-scsi notsc
	initrd /boot/initrd-2.6.30-6.fc12.i686.PAE.img
title Memtest86+ (2.11)
	root (hd0,0)
	kernel /boot/memtest86+-2.11

It appears that the initrd is created just fine -- I see it in /boot -- so it's just the grub.conf updating that isn't working.

This should be fixed with 7.0.1 that just finished building

on my machine, grubby-7.0-1.fc12.x86_64 does not fix this issue
