Description Gratien D'haese 2011-08-29 12:47:58 UTC
Description of problem: The /usr/share/doc/grub2-1.99/README.Fedora list in the utility section the update-grub2 executable, but this one is missing in the current package

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
# rpm -ql grub2 | grep update

Steps to Reproduce:
1. N/A
Actual results:

Expected results:

Additional info:
The /usr/share/doc/grub2-1.99/README.Fedora is incorrect or not up to date, e.g. http://grub.enbug.org/ URL does not exist. And, update-grub2 is mentioned in the README file. Please update the package with the correct information, and  hopefully with update-grub2 too as we need this to update the grub info on the hard disk.

Comment 1 Gratien D'haese 2011-08-30 09:05:23 UTC
Just read in the sources of grub-1.99 NEWS that update-grub has been replaced by grub-mkconfig command.
Perhaps, just update the README.Fedora file in the Utlities section and replace "update-grub2" with "grub2-mkconfig"

Comment 2 Fedora Admin XMLRPC Client 2011-09-16 19:08:19 UTC
This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database.  Reassigning to the new owner of this component.
