Re: [opensuse] "grub --batch" Hangs @ 100% CPU During 11.1 Installation

Randall R Schulz napsal(a):

Partway through the package installation phase of a from-scratch
openSUSE 11.1 installation, the process hung. The last package shown
being installed was grub (the hang occurred when it showed 100% of the
package installed). I switched to VC 9 and ran ps. The command
"grub --batch" was consuming 100% CPU. In fact, it still is. At this
moment, it has used over 40 minutes of CPU time.

Has anybody seen this? Do you know what the problem is? Do you know how
to solve it?

Hi, grub --batch uses perl-Boorloader to write grub first stage to some
position (MBR or partition). So please attach /etc/grub.conf (and also
/etc/boot/ which is used as device translator) which is input
for this command, maybe it is not correctly writted.
