advice on install of limbo not very optimistic
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:44:12 EDT
Description of Problem:Install for limbo cautions about upgrading certain items
- as a result I am running older versions of grub and kernel. This is not what
I would have chosen to do given more information about what the results of the
following the recommendations would have been - the whole point of upgrading is
to put on the latest kernel - and if the loader doesn't work, I don't know what
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Where is this advice coming from? I'm not sure what you are referring to.
As I recall, at the point where the decision is made whether to upgrade grub (in
my case) or not, there is a "recommendation" not to "update the configuration"
if using a boot loader (I use bootmagic, but that is not relevant). In fact,
the previous configuration should be observed, and updated, without damaging
anything, and there should not need to be a recommendation to keep the status
quo (given a boot loader, it seems to me). Hope this helps.
This bug is marked NEEDINFO, but the reporter appears to have answered your
question. Changing back to assigned...
The default is the recommendation. There's the possibility of the
recommendation being incorrect, so it's just a recommendation for now until I'm
suitably convinced that we don't get it wrong.
