Created attachment 615583 [details] grubby patch to change the way the kernel load address is determined Description of problem: The kernel load address was initially determined by using the Hardware entry in /proc/cpuinfo to identify the platform. This involved a substring match that was inexact, and was based on the host hardware, and not the package being installed. This patch changes grubby to use the kernel flavor (last component of the kernel-release) of the kernel package being installed to determine the platform. This approach also allows a kernel to be installed from a host that differs from the target platform when using tools like livemedia-creator. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): grubby-8.17-1 How reproducible: n/a Steps to Reproduce: 1. 2. 3. Actual results: n/a Expected results: n/a Additional info: This change is functionally equivalent to the previous code, unless creating an image using live-media creator and the --armplatform command line argument on a host that differs from the target.
