Update removes kernel entry from grub

Postby dunsurfin » Thu Jun 30, 2011 19:24

Today's update to sys-kernel/linux-sabayon-2.6.39-r6 removed the main kernel entry from my grub.conf (I'm using legacy grub). Fortunately I had a backup in /boot/grub so was able to restore it using "safe mode". I think the relevant part of the update was this:
Code: Select all
 * Package:    sys-kernel/linux-sabayon-2.6.39-r6
 * Repository: sabayon
 * USE:        dmraid elibc_glibc grub kernel_linux splash symlink userland_GNU x86
 * FEATURES:   preserve-libs sandbox
 * Preparing to build the kernel and its modules
 *
 * To avoid automounting and auto(un)installing with /boot,
 * just export the DONT_MOUNT_BOOT variable.
 *
 *
 * Assuming you do not have a separate /boot partition.
 *
