Except that for grub, you don't just install it once. Everytime I upgrade Fedora, it needs to get installed again, and I go through this fiasco again. Last night, I was about this -> <- close to just installing LILO and moving on with my life.

you could use debian stable like me, then you only upgrade the OS every 3 years or so, then grub can pretty much be installed once and forgotten about for at least that long (you don't even strictly have to upgrade grub on disk when the package or OS is upgraded either).

heh now that I have probably offended just about everyone ill shut up
now ;-p


heh. debian stable is about as much of a polar opposite to fedora as you can get, other than perhaps some harcore gentoo stuff.


thanks, but i'll stick with fedora. at least i know that i'll be fighting with grub every 6 months ;)
