Using GNU GRUB 2 in Fedora ========================== Though GRUB 2 provides various feature enhancements over previous GRUB version (referred to as "GRUB", or "GRUB Legacy"), it did not reach its stability and feature completness yet, and thus is not ready to replace it for the whole user base. This package is primarily intended to encourage testing and accelerate distribution integration. It is generally safe to install the package. It is able to co-exist with existing GRUB installation and adds itself to the GRUB menu upon installation, so you'll able to select GRUB 2 from GRUB menu during the boot. Utilities --------- The GRUB 2 utilities are prefixed (or postfixed) with 'grub2': grub2-editenv grub2-mkimage grub2-mkelfimage grub2-mkrescue grub2-pe2elf grub2-emu grub2-install grub2-mkdevicemap grub2-probe grub2-setup update-grub2 Documentation ------------- The GRUB 2 lacks documentation. While you are encouraged to contribute the documentation, you can use the GRUB 2 Wiki [1] as primary source of information pertaining to this development snapshot. [1] http://grub.enbug.org/ If you intend to install grub2 as your primary boot loader refer to the GRUB 2 Wiki for information on how to set it up. Support channels ---------------- If you find a bug in this package, report them to the Red Hat Bugzilla [2]. For talk about using grub2, use IRC channel #grub on freenode Network [3]. You can meet this package maintainer there (nick lkundrak). [2] http://bugzilla.redhat.com/ [3] http://freenode.net/ -- Lubomir Rintel <lkundrak@v3.sk> Fedora Project
