I had a problem with Grub which I solved with the help of the grub maintainers
by using the latest CVS version. In the course of the discussion, they
mentioned that the 0.9 release is very out of date. I see that Gentoo uses a
heavily patched 0.9. Would a recent CVS version be better, or cause other
You can see my (solved) problem on their bug server...
[ Bug #565 ] kernel command returns error 18 when grub loads from ntldr.
if you read /usr/portage/profiles/package.mask you will see that 0.92 is in
gentoo, it just doesnt work with XFS atm ... which is why it hasnt been released
if you dont use xfs and want to use 0.92, then delete the grub entry in that file
and run `emerge grub -u`
My appologies. I encountered this problem a while ago and I forgot to check the
portage tree before submitting the bug.
As I don't use xfs, I'll try 0.92 and let you know if it fixed my problem (it
should do as 0.92 post-dates my CVS snapshot).
I emerged the 0.92 ebuild explicitly and it works.
Verified. 0.92 worked fine for me when explicitly emerged.
0.9.2 is in cvs
