Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 748884
system-config-boot works only with grub not with grub2: drop from default install
Last modified: 2014-03-16 23:29:07 EDT
Description of problem:
I've installed system from TC2 DVD.iso. There is system-config-boot in default compose. But it doesn't work with grub2, which is installed.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Intall system from TC2 DVD.iso in default configuration (or application compose). There is application Bootloader in Applications menu. Click on it. Write root password. Then error message is shown. It says: "error reading /boot/grub/grub.conf". This file doesn't exist, because system uses grub2.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Intall system from TC2 DVD.iso with default apps compose.
2. In system go to Activities -> Applications and click on Bootloader
3. Write root password
4. Error message is shown
Program can't find /boot/grub/grub.conf file.
It should work with grub2 or, and I thing it's better way, this program shouldn't be in default compose.
This bug is against final release criterion no. 13: Menu sanity - the following criteria refer to both a live image and default installed system, and to all release-blocking desktops:
* All Applications listed in the system menus (or equivalent) must have icons which have a consistent appearance and sufficiently high resolution to avoid appearing blurry
* All applications listed under the Applications menu or category must start successfully
* All applications listed under the Applications menu or category must withstand a basic functionality test and not crash after a few minutes of normal use. They must also have working Help and Help -> About menu items
yeah, we should probably drop this from comps. +1 blocker.

Dropped. At some point we might consider whether we want to drop the whole group from the default.
