  + Revision: 60006
  - our default splashimage is now /boot/grub/splash.xpm.gz, mandriva-theme will modify that file according to the theme
* Sun Aug 13 2006 Pixel <> 0.97-17mdv2007.0
  + Revision: 55630
  - fedora nx patches fix grub segfaulting on x86_64 (#24105)

* Thu Feb 02 2006 Pixel <> 0.97-16mdk
  - add BuildRequires: texinfo
  - add reiser4 support (though no BuildRequires yet on reiser4progs-devel which is in contrib)
    (thanks to Lukas Oboril <>)
* Tue Jan 24 2006 Pixel <> 0.97-15mdk
  - don't use old gcc 3.3 anymore (it works nicely with gcc 4)
  - use mkrel
  - drop non working "once" patch
* Mon Jan 23 2006 Pixel <> 0.97-14mdk
  - don't set CFLAGS to optflags
    (when testing objcopy in configure, option -fasynchronous-unwind-tables causes failure)
  - add "once" patch from fedora patch:
    add support for lilo -R-esque select a new os to boot into
* Wed Sep 14 2005 Pixel <> 0.97-13mdk
  - search the boot drive and call grub-install
    when there is no but a menu.lst and a stage2 (for upgrading conectiva)
    (the previous condition was checking, but there is none)
    (maybe we could use /root/tmp/mi/grubcmd...)
* Sat Sep 10 2005 Pixel <> 0.97-12mdk
  - allow /boot to be mounted noexec (using "sh /boot/grub/") (#17935)
* Sat Sep 03 2005 Pixel <> 0.97-11mdk
  - patch grub-install to generate /boot/grub/ 
  - add code in %post to search the boot drive and call grub-install
    when there is no but a (for upgrading conectiva)
  - remove code modifying existing
    (sometimes it's better not using "setup" for explictly not using stage1.5,
     for eg. when you use partimage or similar tools which don't save those sectors)
* Wed Aug 17 2005 Herton Ronaldo Krzesinski <> 0.97-10mdk
  - Added %post and %preun requires for info-install (ticket #17418).
* Sun Aug 07 2005 Herton Ronaldo Krzesinski <> 0.97-9mdk
  - Before using perl script to update /boot/grub/ inside
    %triggerun, we check if the file exists. Also, all output redirected
    to /dev/null as it isn't useful.
* Sat Jul 16 2005 Herton Ronaldo Krzesinski <> 0.97-8mdk
  - Revert back change "Replaced /lib references to /%{_lib}", as Gwenole
    Beauchesne reported it's unlikely we'll have a 64 bits bootloader and could
    cause problems with scripts using /lib in a hardcoded way.
* Fri Jul 15 2005 Herton Ronaldo Krzesinski <> 0.97-7mdk
  - Finally fix BuildRequires of gpm and ncurses packages, had forgot to
    fix this.
  - Updated bootsplash image, new Mandrivas's wallpaper.
  - Replaced /lib references to /%{_lib}.
* Fri Jul 15 2005 Herton Ronaldo Krzesinski <> 0.97-6mdk
  - Escape '$' symbols at embedded perl script inside triggerun script,
    otherwise they get interpreted as shell variables and doesn't work as
* Thu Jul 14 2005 Herton Ronaldo Krzesinski <> 0.97-5mdk
  - Added athlon 64 architectures to Exclusive Archs, grub also works on
    them (reported by Thierry Vignaud).
  - In trigger scripts, do not use cp to copy stage files, instead use mv,
    to avoid problems with grub not finding them on boot because of changed
    inodes and improved trigger script to remove files not used (reported
    by Pascal Rigaux).
* Wed Jun 22 2005 Herton Ronaldo Krzesinski <> 0.97-4mdk
  - Compiling grub with gcc 3.3, I'm getting some errors still when trying
    to boot from a root reiserfs partition, will continue to investigate
    this but for now just using a older gcc to not leave grub broken. Also
    readding use of optflags doesn't causes problems.
  - Remove /boot/grub/backup_stagefiles after upgrading from grub
    versions prior to 0.97-1mdk, as suggested by Pixel.
  - Pass build/host options etc. to configure script.
  - Update stage files on /boot/grub (copy them from /lib/grub to
    /boot/grub) because setup command inside /boot/grub/ needs
    this and doesn't copy automatically the stage files (grub-install also
    does this).
* Sun Jun 19 2005 Herton Ronaldo Krzesinski <> 0.97-3mdk
  - Readded back previous %post code, now from drakboot is
    generated correctly. Removed related Requires(post) too.
  - Fix expansion of %{buildroot} tag on previous changelog entry.
* Wed Jun 01 2005 Herton Ronaldo Krzesinski <> 0.97-2mdk
  - Updated BuildRequires, removed tetex and added tetex-latex/tetex-dvips
    (needed for building ps documentation, they already requires tetex).
  - Do not use configure macro (instead call configure directly), because
    it sets gcc flags that are breaking grub when compiling with gcc 4.0 in some
    cases (grub can't boot from a root reiserfs partition because can't load
    kernel, displaying the error "Invalid or unsupported executable
    format", for example, disabling the default gcc flags and reinstalling
    grub seems to fix the problem).
  - Replaced $RPM_BUILD_ROOT by %{buildroot}.
  - Moved back text documentation files to subpackage doc.
  - Added back mbchk to package.
  - Removed grub-install patch: it is better to install stage files in /lib,
    and with this we don't need the patch anymore, keeping compatibility
    with cases where /usr reside in another partition. This also prevents
    that with a new grub release we must update or check grub-install for
    errors and update this patch. Another problem that I experienced with
    stage files installed in /boot/grub is that grub-install itself
    updates these files on each run, and this causes conflicts because grub
    then doesn't have anymore the original stage file from the package,
    sometimes complaining that /boot/grub/stage2 file isn't valid.
  - Redid graphics patch: fixed gcc4 warnings, other fixes on code to be
    more robust.
  - Redid chainboot patch: fixed gcc4 warnings.
  - Added to post section more code to detect and upgrade grub.
  - Added patch gcc4_warnings, fixing most of gcc4 compiling warnings.
  - Added trigger scripts to handle upgrading from previous grub packages
    (the /boot/grub/*stage* files are removed causing the next boot fail
    with Error 15).
* Tue May 31 2005 Herton Ronaldo Krzesinski <> 0.97-1mdk
  - New upstream version: 0.97.
  - Making sure that we're using automake and aclocal 1.9, by explicitly calling
    them (without using the binaries from alternatives).
  - Reenabled building of documentation files.
  - Redid graphics patch: updated to new grub version and removed redundant .orig
    files inside it.
  - Renamed graphics_info patch to graphics-chainboot_info to reflect better its
  - Removed gcc4 patch, applied upstream.
  - Fix bug in src.rpm: menu.lst.example wasn't included into the source rpm file.

  - Added explicitly permission modes on files section (spec).
* Wed May 25 2005 Herton Ronaldo Krzesinski <> 0.96-1mdk
  - New upstream version: 0.96.
  - Added menu.lst.example file, showing a default configuration as
    example, placed in /boot/grub.
  - Added gcc4 patch, fix compilation issues with gcc 4.0.
  - Removed init-config-end--prepatch, does nothing.
  - Removed robust and fallback-entryno patches, already applied
  - Added mdvversion patch, to show release of the package on boot menu,
    spec updated accordingly.
  - Added a more complete special-raid-devices patch.
  - Removed grub-0.90-grub-install patch file, there is another patch
    grub-0.96-grub-install that does the same thing.
  - Removed uneeded compatibility patches, grub just ignore these
    options if they still exists: i18n-messages-and-keytable2,
  - Added addsyncs patch from Fedora.
  - Replaced graphics with a better one, fixes graphical mode bugs, add
    additional opptions (viewport - move drawing of characters and border,
    shade - add shadow for letters). Added also updated info files
    (graphics_info patch), removed splashimagehelp patch.
  - Added chainboot patch: this adds chainboot option to grub. Chainboot
    is useful for bootable cdroms for example, where after the timeout
    instead of booting from the cdrom boot from first hard disk.
  - Added eltorito patch: fix various issues with grub implementation of
    eltorito non-emulation boot support.
  - Replaced geometry-26kernel patch with a better one without bugs (the
    current patch makes grub to display the message "Unable to read
    partition table entry: Invalid Format" when writing mba of a disk for
    example (to reproduce, try with old release 8mdk the command
    grub-install /dev/hda)
  - Added mem_lower patch.
  - Added odirect patch from Fedora.
  - Added a simple splash image, based on current Mandriva wallpaper.
  - Spec changed accordingly patches/issues fixed.
