Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1266704
Installed kernel updates don't become default in boot loader on MacBook Pro 10,1
Last modified: 2016-12-20 09:46:20 EST
Description of problem:
Kernel updates installed through 'dnf update' on a MacBook Pro 10,1 (mid-2012 15" Retina) appear in the boot loader, but are not selected as the default used to boot. User must manually select the newer kernel with up/down arrows and enter key, or it boots to the originally-installed kernel.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Fedora 23 beta on a MacBook Pro
2. Install updates via 'dnf update' that include a kernel update
3. Reboot machine
Newer kernel (eg 4.2.1-300) is an option, but not selected by default on the boot loader screen. Older kernel (eg 4.2.0-300) is still selected as default.
Newer kernel should be the default.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 23 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 23. 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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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 23 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 23 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2016-12-20. Fedora 23 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no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further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.
