Description daryld 2002-11-26 20:55:38 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20021003 Description of problem: I did an 'up2date -u -f kernel kernel-source'. It seemed to complete successfully. Now a reboot hangs on a screen that is all blank except that the word "GRUB" is in the top left corner. I am able to boot the system with the emergency boot disk. After booting this way, I made another boot disk with the new kernel on it. I am also able to boot with this new boot disk. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 2.8.39-1.7.2 How reproducible: Didn't try Additional info: The system is an IBM eserver xSeries 330. There are two hard drives in it which are mirrored using md. I have upgraded the kernel before using this same process without any problems (kernel 2.4.9-34 to 2.4.18-17.7.x)

there were some issues updating bootloader config on systems with root on md, this should be resolved with current releases.

Upgraded via up2date hoping to fix nonworking fan in Ideq 200p. Stops at Grub.
