Description Artem S. Tashkinov 2012-04-27 19:17:36 EDT
Description of problem: GRUB2 doesn't enable high resolution video mode on boot because unicode.pf2 is missing:

if loadfont unicode ; then
  set gfxmode=auto
  load_video
  insmod gfxterm
  set locale_dir=$prefix/locale
  set lang=en_US
  insmod gettext
fi

$ ls -l /boot/grub2/*.pf2
(nothing)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): grub2-1.99-19.fc17


How reproducible: always


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install F17
2. Reboot
3.
  
Actual results: GRUB2 at 80x25 text mode


Expected results: GRUB2 at native video mode


Additional info:

$ yum whatprovides '*pf2'

Nothing relevant - just /usr/share/grub/themes/starfield/dejavu.pf2 from the grub2 package itself

Thank you!

(I hope grub2 will be updated to this version before Fedora 17 gets released).
