Description Chris Ricker 2003-07-15 08:43:27 EDT
My machine already had 2.4.20-13.9.i686 installed as its only kernel. When I
tried to also install 2.4.20-18.9.i686, grubby failed:

[root@server1 errata]# rpm -ivh kernel-2.4.20-18.9.i686.rpm
Preparing...                ########################################### [100%]
   1:kernel                 ########################################### [100%]
grubby fatal error: unable to find a suitable template
[root@server1 errata]#

Current grub.conf attached momentarily

As you can see from the attached grub.conf, grubby claims to have failed, but it
actually worked....
Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2003-08-26 20:04:47 EDT
Have you seen this again?  I can't see any way for it to happen
Comment 4 Chris Ricker 2003-09-26 16:13:10 EDT
I didn't get this going from 18.9 to 19.9 or 19.9 to 20.9....

Hrmm, going to close as worksforme, then.  Reopen if you reproduce.
