Were the cp and mv errors selinux related errors?
I have SELinux completely disabled on my system, so I know it wasn't related to that. IIRC, the errors were "file not found" errors.

Hello cryogenic666

You say that you did a:

Code:
yum upgrade
was that from an earlier alpha F16:

I was talking about a:

Code:
yum update
within the beta test version of F16. I wonder if that might have caused the difference?

I update daily, but I always run yum upgrade instead of update. I don't think there's enough of a fundamental difference between the two that it could have caused that problem. Who knows? At least now I know if I see that error, run grub2-install again.

Re: Latest grub2 update gives a "file not found" prompt; urgent assistance needed

I just finished reinstalling f16alpha from a usb device to a Acer Aspire One. Ran yum update --skip-broken and all 400+ packages updated.
The grub2 was 1:1.99-5.fc16 rebooted to a login screen, entered psswd and got "OH NO! blah blah blah" re-logged in and was able to get the desktop then.

I did not run "grub2-update" or "grub2-install /dev/sda" before rebooting. On the second reboot all went well at the login screen with no error/warning. Shutting down and calling it a night.
