Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 814576
grub menu not updated after preupgrade
Last modified: 2013-07-31 20:38:57 EDT
Description of problem:
I have upgraded 2 systems from f16 to f17 using preupgrade. one is i686 (IBM ThinkPad X31) and the other is x86_64 (Acer Iconia Tab W500). The tablet boots from sd-card.
Both upgrade fine without any errors, but after reboot only the old f16 kernels are listed. I managed to boot one of the old kernels (lots of error messages, but it came up) and ran
grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg
this succeeded, and at reboot the menu was correct.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I did this 2 days ago and it was the same on both architectures.
Steps to Reproduce:
Additional info: Both systems were patched up minutes prior to the upgrade. all .rpmnew files had been fixed up manually. the acer was a plain f16 install, the thinkpad has had a lot of tweaking.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 17 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 17. 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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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 '17'.
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 17'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 17 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 change the
'version' to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 17's end of life.
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.
Fedora 17 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2013-07-30. Fedora 17 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no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further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.
