I'm not using ext4, just ext3.

Well, I tried reinstalling, but every time I connected /dev/hdb (I didn't want it erased during the reinstall), Grub and Grub2 both refused to boot with "error 2".

Even after using a rescue disk, putting /dev/hdb in fstab, mounting it, reinstalling grub, it still failed to boot with "error 2". So I'm worse off today than I was last week.

LILO, still an option on the Debian install, worked. Hi, LILO, long time no see.

unless of course you have a separate /boot partition that is not ext4

Do you have Tourettes Syndrome?

I fail to see any need for this.

WTF!!?!?!

Considering grub-legacy has to be patched to support EXT4 you SHOULD use grub2, I've just installed grub2 and it works fine, just had to much through different cds that worked.

I took a radical approach to testing ext4, installed lenny with grub2 on ext3, converted mounted drive and then rebooted. Since fsck is forced on reboot everything worked fine. I'm now running grub2 with ext4.

BTW there are stable Grub2 sources, hence why I had to use lenny, squeeze is broken.

thanks for testing...I should have just given the link earlier...and its subject to change

http://grub.enbug.org/CurrentStatus

for those interested it reads

-- ext2 (+ext3 with journaling support, +ext4 extents in SVN)

which translated IMHO means ext4 is not yet suitable for most distros or most packages for grub2 ....unless you choose to go for the svn edition.

2) sidux site changed their structure so my old link has been fixed
