Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 87614
wrong comment character recommended for grub.conf
Last modified: 2014-08-04 18:23:43 EDT
Description of problem:
on the manual the solution if having trouble with the GRUB boot screen wrongly
recomends using ";" to comment the splash line
grub.conf uses the "#" character to indicate a line is a comment, as published
on the info node "Device map"
"You can put any comments in the file if needed, as the grub shell assumes
that a line is just a comment if the first character is `#'"
this same mistake can be found on the manuals since 7.2 and could be probably
this problem also affect the "enterprise" products (AS 2.1, WS 2.1 and so on)
and the corresponding documentation
Thanks very much for the feedback. This correction will appear in future
versions of the documentation.
