Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 647946
After UEFI install, system-config-boot cannot find grub.conf
Last modified: 2013-02-13 21:40:40 EST
Description of problem:
After an UEFI install of Fedora 14, system-config-oot reports "Error reading /boot/grub/grub.conf
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. UEFI install Fedora 14
2. Select System/Administration/Bootloader
Cannot find grub.conf
system-config-boot should edit /boot/efi/EFI/redhat/grub.conf.
No /boot/grub/grub.conf exists after UEFI-install
Still a problem in F16. In fact arguably even more of a problem in F16, because the only systems with grub will be EFI. system-config-boot doesn't appear to handle grub2.

Not a duplicate. 734709 is "system-config-boot needs to support grub2", this is "system-config-boot doesn't support grub on UEFI installs".
well, if s-c-boot would use a "libgrubby" (bug 739483), then this feature would be automatically gained...
Right, but the current issue is that in some situations it opens /etc/grub.conf (which would work) and in other situations it opens /boot/grub/grub.conf (which won't). It seems possible to fix this without a complete rearchitecture.
It was my understanding that /etc/grub.conf should point to the right configuration file. Is there more to it than that, or why is a major change needed?
Fedora 16 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2013-02-12. Fedora 16 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
