I actually thought I was on grub2, i thought that was the default install on
F16! Not to mention the "look" is much different on F16! I currently have:
Installed by default, not sure how to tell if it is booting with grub1 or 2?
I do not have the normal files in /boot/grub/ that I'm used to, only one
file named splash.xpm.gz, then a bunch of stuff in /boot/grub2/.
Just updated to kernel-3.1.0-0.rc3.git0.0.fc16.x86_64, same problem.
When your hangs are you getting this output as well?
