fedup f18 -> f19 grub2 theme files not found
Last modified: 2013-06-24 10:47:55 EDT
Description of problem:
I performed upgrade with fedup from f18 to f19. After upgrade grub reports following error before showing boot menu:
error: file `/grub2/themes/system/DejaVu-Sans-10.pf2' not found.
error: file `/grub2/themes/system/DejaVu-Sans-12.pf2' not found.
error: file `/grub2/themes/system/DejaVu-Sans-Bold-14.pf2' not found.
error: file `/grub2/themes/system/theme.txt' not found.
Press any key to continue...
After that plain grub menu appears. Actual booting works fine.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
f18 to f19-TC5
grub2-15.fc18 in f18 and grub2-20.fc19 in f19
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install fedora 18 desktop from install DVD
2. yum update; reboot
3. fedup with --instrepo https://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/fedora/linux/development/19/x86_64/os/
When booting error message appears reporting that some of grub2 theme files are missing, user is prompted to press any key. After that plain grub2 menu appears.
Fancy grub2 menu.
The same behavior appeared when upgrading f18 to f19-TC6.
All fedup does is install packages; if grub2 needs to migrate/modify config files to make the menu work, that's something to fix in the grub2 package.
same things happened here, too.
not upgrade from F18, using F19-beta for daily-use already.
after update grub2 and grub2-tools from 2.00-19 to 2.00-20 would appeared same behavior.
