Alerte GRUB (fwd)
Here's something I got from debian-french.
A bug from the "savedefault" option from the grub menu, which writes the
new default setting not where it should:
here's an extract from there:
What's worse, is that AFAICS save_default writes the saved_entry into
A RANDOM SECTOR, without any sanity checks if the sector could be
right. This is because "install_second_sector", the sector where the
saved_entry is written to, is initialized from %ebp which is not set
and a reply:
Ok, I got. I'll fix the problem. For now, PLEASE DO NOT USE
savedefault, since IT CAN BREAK THE CONTENTS OF YOUR DISK.
