I am just having a bad-hair day or something :-(
I am trying install FC5 as a multi-boot partition
and I have done this many times before, although it
has not always been easy in previous releases I
have done, but I was able to to get it working from
FC1 through FC4 and FC5-T3.
In this particular situation, I have installed my
/boot partition in /dev/hda3 (hd0,2) and my / partition
in /dev/hda7 (hd0,6) and I told anaconda (first time installation)
to install grub at /dev/hda7 and when the install completed,
and rebooted - grub fails to run. My multi-boot program
(system commander) is running but I could not launch
fedora from it.
Ok, so I whipped out the rescue disc, booted it, and
chroot /mnt/sysimage, then looked in /boot and I see
that the kernel and the rest of the stuff there including
the grub directory. Looking in the grub directory, all
the stages are there - minus grub.conf
Strange... why is grub.conf missing? Why is the
splash.xpm.gz file missing?
Ok, I created grub.conf from scratch, the grub.conf file,
rebooted and nope this did not work... yes, I used the
proper (hd0,6) definitions so that is not the issue.
Using the rescue disc again, I went to /boot, and
then moved grub to xxxx, then ran grub-install as:
It ran... and created a new grub directory with all
the stages, minus grub.conf amd splash.xpm.gz files.
What is going on? Do I need to get a strong drink
