Bug Description

Binary package hint: grub

devices.map is correct. However, menu.lst is incorrect, after the automagic step has run (in this case during a dapper -> edgy dist-upgrade).

So, e.g., it creates:

title Ubuntu, kernel 2.6.17-10-386
root (hd1,6)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.17-10-386 root=/dev/hdd7 ro quiet splash
initrd /boot/initrd.img-2.6.17-10-386
savedefault
boot

Whereas the following is the correct configuration:

title Ubuntu, kernel 2.6.17-10-386
root (hd0,6)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.17-10-386 root=/dev/hda7 ro quiet splash
initrd /boot/initrd.img-2.6.17-10-386
savedefault
boot

This was only a problem on edgy that had been dist-upgraded from dapper. Once I reinstalled from the livecd, the problem is resolved. Therefore I think this can be closed.
