Description William Brown 2011-09-28 02:35:56 EDT
Description of problem:

Installation of an older kernel causes grubby to generate a menu item like such

menuentry 'Fedora (' --class fedora --class gnu-linux --class gnu --class os {
	set gfxpayload=keep
	insmod gzio
	insmod part_gpt
	insmod ext2
	set root='(hd0,gpt2)'
	search --no-floppy --fs-uuid --set=root 1aff1091-9965-4c8d-9a57-12f0e36d1c98
	echo 'Loading Fedora (3.1.0-0.rc6.git0.3.fc16.x86_64)'
	linux	/vmlinuz- root=UUID=dec6864b-e480-4901-898d-0c02f4eb5db4 ro  KEYTABLE=dvorak rd.lvm=0 quiet SYSFONT=latarcyrheb-sun16 rhgb rd.luks=0 LANG=en_US.UTF-8
	echo 'Loading initial ramdisk ...'
	initrd /initramfs-

Specifically note that the echo lines are incorrect. This misleads the user into believing the wrong kernel is being booted.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install an older kernel (rpm -ivh --force kernel-older-version)
2. View grub menu

Actual results:

Wrong version in echo line

Expected results:

Correct version is listed.
