Description Flags
grub.conf that grubby segfaulted on none

Description Chris Ricker 2003-02-10 03:34:52 UTC
I just tried upgrading to pre-beta5 (mkinitrd 3.4.39-1)

After the upgrade, the system failed to boot. The upgrade had replaced the old
kernel with the new one, but left the old grub.conf in place. Looking through
grub.conf, it appears that the old grub.conf is because grubby segfaulted when
the kernel was upgraded.

Upgrading kernel-2.4.20-2.33.
/sbin/new-kernel-pkg: line 260:   534 Segmentation fault      /sbin/grubby --add
-kernel=$bootPrefix/vmlinuz-$version $INITRD --copy-default --title "$title" --a
rgs="root=$rootdevice" --remove-kernel="TITLE=$title"
/sbin/new-kernel-pkg: line 260:   545 Segmentation fault      /sbin/grubby --rem

Could you attach the grub.conf?

Comment 2 Chris Ricker 2003-02-10 15:14:00 UTC
Created attachment 89970 [details]
grub.conf that grubby segfaulted on

This is the grub.conf on the system already which grubby didn't upgrade....

Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2003-02-18 17:25:19 UTC
I don't see anything at all wrong with the grub.conf, but it sounds suspiciously
like bug 84128
