Description Michael Redinger 2003-02-09 19:34:05 UTC
Red Hat Linux Reference Guide 8.0.93
The documentation is missing information on how to (re)install the
bootloader from a rescue environment.
(Ed, you asked for more feedback ... so, this bug report and all the
following are basically your fault ... :)
(Most of the bug can be considered RFEs, there are little "real" bugs.)

Accepted as an RFE, although this may go better in the Rescue Mode Chapter of
the CGS.n Either way, we'll figure it out.


Comment 2 Johnray Fuller 2003-09-19 19:26:33 UTC
I think this should be in the Rescue Mode chapter of the SAG.

This feature will not make it into Taroon.

Transfering ownership.

Comment 3 Tammy Fox 2004-02-27 05:59:30 UTC
change owner to new one

Comment 4 Andrius Benokraitis 2005-03-16 21:43:48 UTC
Greetings! I do believe I can squeeze this in... here are the steps I came up with:

- boot with Red Hat CD #1 (easiest)
- 'linux rescue'
- 'chroot /mnt/sysimage'
- '/sbin/grub-install /dev/hda'
- if partitions have changed, /boot/grub/grub.conf must be edited
- reboot

Would this suffice? :-)

Thanks for the addition!

Added to chapter and committed to CVS. Expect to see the addition for the
RHEL4U1 update of the system admin guide.
