Grub Error 17: won't load after I add a new partition with cfdisk
I decided to add a new partition for /var , as it was beginning to fill
up my root partition. so I added a new one with cfdisk, and then my
whole partition numbering changed - every partition got incremented by
1. so I changed everything needed in fstab, then rebooted, and then
grub gave me error 17 - I needed to boot up with my Debian CD, delete
the new partition and then reboot again.
What do I need to do in order to prevent this? when I was using lilo, I
just ran `lilo` after making a change to the partition table or kernel,
and it was ok. I assume there is some parallel action needed to be done
in grub, but what would it be ?
thanks in advance.
