Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1007931
if a kernel is installed, write /etc/sysconfig/kernel with DEFAULTKERNEL set appropriately
Last modified: 2015-06-29 20:42:17 EDT
appliance-creator currently does not create this file, but anaconda does. (It's in bootloader.py.) Currently, we're writing this in the cloud-kickstart file, but that is a) ugly and b) doesn't work if we want to use the same kickstart for archs which require different kernel package names (like kernel-PAE).
this is not a bug at all, not being there doesn't cause any issues. in some appliance cases we install two or more kernels. which makes it impossible to say whats the right kernel

This is incorrect. Without this file, the default for new-kernel-pkg is to not make kernel upgrades the default. Since that's the normal behavior in Fedora and kind of surprising, I think it does indeed count as an issue.
This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database. Reassigning to the new owner of this component.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 20 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 20. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version'
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version.
Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not
able to fix it before Fedora 20 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Fedora 20 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2015-06-23. Fedora 20 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
