Re: Inclusion of Grub 2 in FC7 ?

Just a small update on developments with this. I finally got some time
this weekend to start to bang this out. Once I thought I had it..to my
surprise commands like "grub-install" are actually shell scripts
(partially generated from .in files..oh autoconf generated
scripts..how nice). And they specifically look for commands like
"grub-setup". So I'm going to be taking a little more time add patches
to the spec files so that everything can ex. "grub2-install" or
"grub2-setup" and work harmoniously.

So just to let everyone know I'm still working on it :-) . Hope to
have a spec and patches out by end of tuesday.

This shouldn't be too big of a deal using the grub2 name. Down the
road you can just make a symlink to grub2 that is named grub.
Currently I think there just needs to be a migration path to grub2.
Hopefully if it can go into FC 7 it can begin the migration.
