Description James Manning 2001-10-04 05:35:24 UTC
Description of Problem:
on my laptop, rh 7.1 (hda5) booted from lilo with windows me 
on hda2 and win2k from hda3.  When lilo chain-boots to the windows
loader (where I select between WinME or Win2K) that's on hda2,
APM works fantastic inside both.  When I ran the RH 7.2 upgrade and
switched to grub, APM stopped working in both windows versions but 
continued to work in Linux.  When
I did a mv /etc/lilo.conf.anaconda /etc/lilo.conf;lilo to switch
back to lilo chaining to the windows loader, APM in windows worked again.  
This makes me think that something about grub h/w initialization (or, less 
likely, chain booting method) is what's breaking APM in windows.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
the ver in RH 7.2 final.  I'm booted into Win2K at the moment on the 
laptop :)

How Reproducible:


I know this isn't necessarily a grub problem, but:

1) it'd be nice for grub to act like lilo and not break Win APM
2) it would seem to be a possible entry for the knowledge base

James -- I'm quite frightened, someone else filed the same bug the same day as
you :)

I might ask you to try some things for me if I can't manage to dig up a laptop
around here to throw 2k on to test with.

Ok, that's cool... I can also let you borrow the laptop if you want (for maybe like a 
week or two) if that works out better.  Either way is fine by me :)  Just lemme know 
if you wanna borrow it, I'll bring it into work and I can give it to you over lunch or 
whatever (or just hop over Meridian and drop it off)
