Description Mike 2006-04-25 17:16:20 EDT
Description of problem:

It appears that a generic kernel installation routine is being used to install
xenU kernels and that causes them to be added to /boot/grub/menu.lst for
boot-time selection.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

FC5

How reproducible:

Repeatable

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install a xenU kernel
2. check /boot/grub/menu.lst for entry for newly installed kernel
Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2006-04-26 12:57:54 EDT
This is intentional as you need to have them installed that way in the guest.
Comment 2 Mike 2006-04-26 13:49:25 EDT
Is there documentation for how this is supposed to be used?

Either way, it is misleading when you boot the host and see a kernel in the list
that cannot be booted on physical hardware.
