grub upgrade issue...

I went to upgrade grub to the latest version in the repos and ran into a strange issue.  When I ran the command "grub-install /dev/hda" it gave an error message about no BIOS being mapped to that drive.  Grub upgrades have always worked before, so I checked the /boot/grub/device.map file and it looked like this:

(fd0)    /dev/floppy/0
(hd0)    /dev/ide/host0/bus0/target0/lun0/disc

where it should have been more like this:

(fd0)    /dev/fd0
(hd0)    /dev/hda

I changed it accordingly and the upgrade worked fine.

Anyone here happen to know how the weird entries might have gotten in there?  Was it perhaps a leftover from our old devfs days?

dunno, if it was devfs it would have read /dev/discs/disco/part3 some something, not what you posted.

Re: grub upgrade issue...

You are probably correct, jellywerker.  It was the "disc" part of the entry that made me think of devfs.  Maybe someone else knows where it might have originated.

Re: grub upgrade issue...

Something with initrd perhaps? or with a new kernel?
