But use "update-grub" instead of "grub-mkconfig"

From 1.97 "update-grub" is removed and replaced with "grub-mkconfig"

I just thought you should know! :-)

Barry, I'll just copy a message from Tom H in another mailing list which
is self-explanatory......

Thanks, Tom.

Well I just installed a packaged version of 1.98 for Mandriva testing before it was pushed into the release, and I reported :-

The reply was :-
{pts/0}% grep -r update-grub BUILD
BUILD/grub-1.98/NEWS:* update-grub is replaced by grub-mkconfig.

So which is correct? The Mandriva package does not install the script /usr/sbin/update-grub.

Who is Tom H and which version was he quoting from?
