Re: [opensuse] Grub bugs ... should I file separate bugs for each one?

I'm confused by this whole thread.

Is this a reasonable summary:

Form latest to earliest use of labels during boot:

/etc/fstab - by_label, etc., fully supported

/boot/grub/device.map - by_label, etc., fully supported

/boot/grub/menu.lst - by_label, etc., fully supported

MBR used to invoke grub stage 1.5 or 2. - No label support, so the
user can be screwed every time a user adds / removes disks?

That's not a bug, that's FUBAR. I did not realize we were allowing
the government to design our boot methodologies.
