Description Jerry 2012-04-06 16:38:34 UTC
I am not sure this is a grubby issue.  All is well with a cold boot.

On warm boot, grubby menu screen appears as four sets of very tiny text menus across the top of the screen. Not readable.  Default boot occurs normally after this and you can use down arrow to select other boot images in menu, but you can only tell where you are by counting how many items down the list you have traversed.  Then pressing enter will select it and boot proceeds.

Video mode is not getting set or reset correctly on reboot.

$ rpm -qa | grep grub

I can not pinpoint exactly when this started, but approximately within the last 30 days.

Could you do some testing and see if booting an older kernel leaves the machine in a state where grub shows the boot menu correctly?

Comment 2 Vladimir Serbinenko 2012-06-02 19:27:33 UTC
what does "videoinfo" say? Especially the line with asterisk and the Preffered mode line.

Comment 3 Fedora End Of Life 2013-01-16 16:59:51 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 16 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 16. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 
'version' of '16'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 16's end of life.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 16 is end of life. If you 
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version of Fedora, you are encouraged to click on 
"Clone This Bug" and open it against that version of Fedora.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

The process we are following is described here: 

Comment 4 Fedora End Of Life 2013-02-13 21:16:45 UTC
Fedora 16 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2013-02-12. Fedora 16 is 
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further 
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of 
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
