long pause after installing last package, grubby fatal error
Last modified: 2011-11-25 10:14:01 EST
Description of problem:
After anaconda installs the last package there is a long pause before installing the bootloader. Install.log reveals grubby fatal error
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run installer
long pause after installing last package, install log shows grubby fatal error
no long pause
Last lines of install.log:
09:30:53 Installing iwl4965-firmware-126.96.36.199-3.fc15.noarch
09:30:53 Installing ipw2100-firmware-1.3-12.fc15.noarch
grubby fatal error: unable to find a suitable template
grubby: doing this would leave no kernel entries. Not writing out new config.
*** FINISHED INSTALLING PACKAGES ***
The logs do not reveal with what parameters grubby is called. How can I debug this further?
This is probably related to my bug BZ#730124
The pause is caused by rpm running a number of package post scripts and for example building kernel initrd.
The "suitable template" message is not important and well known and there is no need for debugging. The boot loader configuration will be created later.
