Reddit: [Question] Grub Rescue Help Needed

Saturday 22nd of October 2016 02:49:38 AM

General Fedora noob here. I cleared my harddrive a few weeks ago and installed Fedora 24 on it Worked for a while, but when I tried to boot into Fedora a few hours ago, i went into grub rescue. For what it's worth, when I boot from a USB (as if I was installing again from a USB) I can see my documents in dev/dma1. I don't really know what to do with this information though. I'm guessing it's looking for grub2 in the wrong place, but how can I find the correct place to point it to? Thanks

  • Spark on Kubernetes at Spark Summit EU
    I’ll be speaking about Spark on Kubernetes at Spark Summit EU this week. The main thesis of my talk is that the old way of running Spark in a dedicated cluster that is shared between applications makes sense when analytics is a separate workload. However, analytics is no longer a separate workload — instead, analytics is now an essential part of long-running data-driven applications. This realization motivated my team to switch from a shared Spark cluster to multiple logical clusters that are co-scheduled with the applications that depend on them.
