Not sure if anyone is aware of this mess of a bug:
Basically grub pukes all over itself when trying to interact with XFS
filesystems, resulting in an unbootable, or barely bootable FC4
Any gurus here know of a solution?
Yes, i know, this is really a FC/grub issue, but since its specific to
XFS, i thought someone might have run into it and found a workaround
Not sure if this is connected, but the FC installer (anaconda) uses the
code in 'booty' to install the bootloader - this has a work around for
grub on XFS which uses xfs_freeze - see the thread that starts with:
However, anaconda doesn't include /usr/sbin/xfs_freeze (and
/usr/sbin/xfs_io) on the stage2 installer images.
As I said above, I don't know if it's connnected, as I haven't installed
Unfortunately, it's not straight forward to get xfs_freeze and xfs_io
included unless you patch the anaconda src RPM and rebuild the install
