Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 69667
Boot Loader options don't make sense
Last modified: 2015-01-07 18:57:56 EST
Description of Problem:
In the Boot Loader options section, there are several things which don't make sense.
1) It's not intuitive that to get to the upgrade options, you have to deselect
the "Install boot loader" option
2) You can only select one of [grub, lilo, MBR, first sector]; should be
one of [grub,lilo] and one of [MBR, first sector]
3) Selecting LILO still leaves the option for "Encrypt GRUB password" available
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1, 2, and 3 should all be fixed in redhat-config-kickstart-2.3.2-5. Please verify.
Think that we missed something in the build system, as all three problems are
still present with redhat-config-kickstart-2.3.2-5.
Dammit! I think there's a bug in glade that keeps writing over the radio button
groupings. I wish I'd never used Glade in the first place.

Ok, please try again with 2.3.2-9. Sorry about that.
OK, we're getting there, but still not quite. What I have now is that if I
enter something in the GRUB password field, then change to using lilo as the
bootloader, the GRUB password still gets written to the ks.cfg file as an option
for LILO. So, we end up with something like this:
bootloader -useLilo -linear -location=mbr -password=tclmeRHS
Should be fixed in 2.3.2-11. I mean it this time. Seriously. Quit laughing.
Fix confirmed with redhat-config-kickstart-2.3.2-14.
