Description of problem:
A set of updated CD are created (using genhdlist and buildinstall) with kernel
2.4.18-5. The installation part with the CD's completes without any errors, but
when booting the PC, the only text printed to the screen is:
GRUB Loading stage2...
and the everything stops - I'm not even able to change VT3 or VT5.
The problem exists on kickstart installations as well as "interactive/manual"
An updated CD set built with kernel-2.4.18-4 does not have this problem (at
least I have never seen it on the installations I did with my 2.4.18-4 based CD
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Build new CD image set using genhdlist, buildinstall, kernel-2.4.18-5
2. Install from updated CD
3. Boot after installation
Actual Results: System freezes during boot
Expected Results: The GRUB boot-menu should have been displayed
Probably related to #67342 and #67441.
Issue also discussed on the anaconda-devel list. For further (maybe usefull)
