Ensure grub2 and grub-efi are both on the install media without making them 'default' in comps
Last modified: 2011-10-29 02:32:12 EDT
For F16, since anaconda will choose to install either grub2 or grub-efi depending on whether the install is EFI or BIOS, we need to ensure both packages are on the DVD and netinst images without making either one 'default' in comps (and hence having it installed when we don't want it).
I believe the way to do this would be to include both in the fedora-install-fedora.ks kickstart.
Proposing as an F16 blocker as this is required to ensure anaconda handles bootloader installation properly.
depends on the existence of grub-efi, obviously.
Discussed at 2011-10-07 blocker review meeting, accepted as a blocker per criterion "The installer must boot and run on systems using EFI other than Apple Macs".
The changes to support this were committed to the spin-kickstarts repo.
spin-kickstarts-0.16.2-1.fc16 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 16.
* should fix your issue,
* was pushed to the Fedora 16 testing repository,
* should be available at your local mirror within two days.
Update it with:
# su -c 'yum update --enablerepo=updates-testing spin-kickstarts-0.16.2-1.fc16'
as soon as you are able to.
Please go to the following url:
then log in and leave karma (feedback).
TC1 DVD image, loopback mounted:
[root@adam temp]# find -name grub*
looks good to me!
closing because we don't use the packaged spin-kickstarts, we use git master directly (currently), so this is actually fixed already wrt image generation.
spin-kickstarts-0.16.3-1.fc16 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 16.
spin-kickstarts-0.16.4-1.fc16 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 16.
spin-kickstarts-0.16.4-1.fc16 has been pushed to the Fedora 16 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
