Description Orion Poplawski 2010-08-13 22:00:30 UTC
Description of problem:

Running with /boot on raid1 array:

/dev/md0 on /boot type ext3 (rw)

md0 : active raid1 sdb1[1] sda1[0]
      128384 blocks [2/2] [UU]

On install of new kernel, the system will fail to boot - stuck on blank screen.  I need to boot the rescue image and re-run grub-install (on /dev/sds since that is what the boot disk shows up as in the rescue system).

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

How reproducible:
Every time

Additional info:

grub> find /grub/stage1
find /grub/stage1
Floating point exception

Does this still happen with the most recent release of RHEL5?
