Code:
tux ramaswamy # grub2-install /dev/sda6
Installing for i386-pc platform.
grub2-install: warning: File system `ext2' doesn't support embedding.
grub2-install: warning: Embedding is not possible.  GRUB can only be installed in this setup by using blocklists.  However, blocklists are UNRELIABLE and their use is discouraged..
grub2-install: error: will not proceed with blocklists.

i have already installed legacy grub in the partition.
how can i make the grub2 to install in the partition ?
why it refuses to proceed further ?

this version of beta 2 only does complain like this.
previous version was woring fine in the same partition.

my system has no seperate boot . only / partition . and no swap and is formatted to ext3
is there any way of getting older version of grub2 ?
