Default grubby fatal error

Hi,

I know it's not fully supported n stuff, but I upgraded from F15 to F16 and noticed an error during installation of the kernel.

So I haven't restarted, I removed the kernel and reinstalled it again and I still get this error:

Package(s) data still to download: 24 M
kernel-3.1.0-7.fc16.x86_64.rpm | 24 MB 00:04
Running Transaction Check
Running Transaction Test
Transaction Test Succeeded
Running Transaction
Installing : kernel-3.1.0-7.fc16.x86_64 1/1
grubby fatal error: unable to find a suitable template
Non-fatal POSTTRANS scriptlet failure in rpm package kernel-3.1.0-7.fc16.x86_64

Installed:
kernel.x86_64 0:3.1.0-7.fc16

Complete!


Is it really non fatal?

I can see it's been added to /boot/grub/grub.conf

title Fedora (3.1.0-7.fc16.x86_64)
root (hd0,0)
kernel /vmlinuz-3.1.0-7.fc16.x86_64 ro root=LABEL=/ vga=791 SYSFONT=latarcyrheb-sun16 LANG=en_GB.UTF-8 KEYTABLE=uk
title Fedora (2.6.40.4-5.fc15.x86_64)
root (hd0,0)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.40.4-5.fc15.x86_64 ro root=LABEL=/ vga=791 SYSFONT=latarcyrheb-sun16 LANG=en_GB.UTF-8 KEYTABLE=uk
initrd /initramfs-2.6.40.4-5.fc15.x86_64.img

However, I'm a little concerned as there appears to be no initramfs - should there be?

Any pointers'd be helpful

There's a bugzilla about this. It's supposed to be updated/fixed soon. In the meantime, try a "grubs-install --recheck /dev/sda"
(whatever your boot drive is)...that seems to fix the problem for me in rawhide.
