Bug#341538: update-grub duplicates existing splashimage entry everytime it is run

Martin Steigerwald
Package: grub
Version: 0.97-1
Severity: minor

Hello,

I tried grub 0.97-1 from unstable yesterday. Before I had
0.95+cvs20040624-19 from Etch.

While trying out grub 0.97 (see bug # ) I ran update-grub
several times. It told me that is found splash image but
will use the previous default. Curious on what will happen
when I remove my previous setting I removed my previous
setting and tried again. But update-grub still insisted
that I have a previous default set.

Well later I found out why: It duplicated the splashimage
entry lots of times in the AUTOMAGIC KERNELS LIST and
I removed only my own entry before that AUTOMAGIC KERNELS
LIST.

Needless to say it shouldn't do that ;-)

Regards,
Martin

# menu.lst - See: grub(8), info grub, update-grub(8)
#            grub-install(8), grub-floppy(8),
#            grub-md5-crypt, /usr/share/doc/grub
#            and /usr/share/doc/grub-doc/.

## default num
# Set the default entry to the entry number NUM. Numbering starts from 0, and
# the entry number 0 is the default if the command is not used.
#
# You can specify 'saved' instead of a number. In this case, the default entry
# is the entry saved with the command 'savedefault'.          
default 0

## timeout sec
# Set a timeout, in SEC seconds, before automatically booting the default entry
# (normally the first entry defined).
timeout 5

# Set colors for foreground and background:
# (RRGGBB, in hex)
#
# These are optional it will still work without them
#
foreground  = ffffff
background  = 000000

# The splash image location (doesn't need to be the root partition, BTW,
# since grub can read your filesystem):

## password ['--md5'] passwd
# If used in the first section of a menu file, disable all interactive editing

### BEGIN AUTOMAGIC KERNELS LIST
## lines between the AUTOMAGIC KERNELS LIST markers will be modified
## by the debian update-grub script except for the default options below

## DO NOT UNCOMMENT THEM, Just edit them to your needs

## ## Start Default Options ##
## default kernel options
## default kernel options for automagic boot options
## If you want special options for specific kernels use kopt_x_y_z
## where x.y.z is kernel version. Minor versions can be omitted.
## e.g. kopt=root=/dev/hda1 ro
##      kopt_2_6_8=root=/dev/hdc1 ro
##      kopt_2_6_8_2_686=root=/dev/hdc2 ro
# kopt=root=/dev/hda5 ro resume=/dev/hda7

## default grub root device
## e.g. groot=(hd0,0)
# groot=(hd0,4)

## should update-grub create alternative automagic boot options
## e.g. alternative=true
##      alternative=false
# alternative=true

## should update-grub lock alternative automagic boot options
## e.g. lockalternative=true
##      lockalternative=false
# lockalternative=false

## additional options to use with the default boot option, but not with the
## alternatives
## e.g. defoptions=vga=791 resume=/dev/hda5
# defoptions=

## altoption boot targets option
## multiple altoptions lines are allowed
## e.g. altoptions=(extra menu suffix) extra boot options
##      altoptions=(recovery mode) single
# altoptions=(recovery mode) single

## controls how many kernels should be put into the menu.lst
## only counts the first occurence of a kernel, not the
## alternative kernel options
## e.g. howmany=all
##      howmany=7
# howmany=all

## should update-grub create memtest86 boot option
## e.g. memtest86=true
##      memtest86=false
# memtest86=true

## ## End Default Options ##
