Description Gilboa Davara 2012-03-19 05:09:31 EDT
As the title suggests, 3.2.10 was pushed to Fedora 16 mid-last-week.
grub2-mkconfig places it last (due to the 3.2.<1>0.
As suggested in GNU mailing list, sort version should be used instead of numerical sort.

Patch attached, tested on several machines.

Hi Gilboa-

I see the same bug. It is the version_test_numeric function within /usr/lib/grub/grub-mkconfig_lib which does not work very well. I'd love to see your fix, but I can not see any attachments to this bug. Are you sure you added it?

grub-mkconfig_lib sort patch

Sorry, my bad.
Comment 3 Hans Ecke 2012-03-21 11:26:07 EDT
Ah, I wasn't aware of the "-V" option to sort. Good to know. Works fine here. Could somebody please apply this patch (and/or submit to upstream)?
Comment 4 Gilboa Davara 2012-03-21 13:53:56 EDT
I'll free some time to create a patch against the actual grub package and post it here.
As I said in the OP, upstream is already aware of the problem (I've created the patch based upon the upstream suggested solution)
