Description Mike McLean 2003-05-06 17:01:17 UTC
* -re0505.2

getting a segfault from grub when I run grub-install. Will attach an strace.

This is causing some install cases to fail, primarily those installs where grub
was not already installed.

New kernel will (hopefully) fix this...

Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2003-05-08 03:07:08 UTC
Due to exec shield breaking nested function trampoline stuff.

Blah.  Worked around for now in the installer at least.  Hopefully we'll have
the newer version of the exec shield patch for the next beta and then I can use
chkstk to fix grub instead of turning off exec shield in the installer.
