Re: Ext3-users digest, Vol 1 #793 - 9 msgs



It is most likely that your grub.conf file is _different_ than menu.lst. grub.conf is just a dummy symlink made by RH under /boot/grub as well as under /etc to make peoples lives easier. (Or harder as the case maybe)

If the contents of grub.conf is what you want to use for your bootup listing..

cd /boot/grub
mv menu.lst menu.lst.bak
cp grub.conf menu.lst
rm grub.conf
#optional step
ln -sf menu.lst grub.conf
#optional step
ln -sf /boot/grub/grub.conf /etc/grub.conf

Hello All,


Well - I am baffled as our techies wrote:

<SNIP>
BB3 is running the GRUB bootloader.
The kernel updates has updated the grub config file which now shows 3
boot options for kernels: 2.4.18-24.7.x
2.4.18-18.7.x
2.4.7-10


default option is set to the first entry.

However when the server boots the only option displayed by GRUB is
2.4.7-10
This is confirmed when the server boots and the kernel is displayed as
2.4.7-10
</SNIP>

Any ideas why GRUB does not show all 3 kernels & then boot the latest?

Here is /boot/grub.conf
<snip>
[root ns5 grub]# cat grub.conf # grub.conf generated by anaconda
#
# Note that you do not have to rerun grub after making changes to this file
# NOTICE: You do not have a /boot partition. This means that
# all kernel and initrd paths are relative to /, eg.
# root (hd0,1)
# kernel /boot/vmlinuz-version ro root=/dev/md0
# initrd /boot/initrd-version.img
#boot=/dev/hda

timeout=10

Help - baffled!
