Description of problem:
When a customer first installs Advanced Server 2.1 and has the -e.3
kernel, the title line is
title Red Hat Linux Advanced Server-smp (2.4.9-e.3smp)
when upgrading to (say to a -e.43smp kernel), the title becomes
title Red Hat Linux (2.4.9-e.43smp)
Kickstart was NOT used on this box, only up2date
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install an Advanced Server 2.1 product.
2.Upgrade the kernel with Up2date
3.check the /etc/grub.conf file for the title of the kernel images.
Actual Results: Red Hat Linux
Expected Results: Red Hat Linux Advanced Server
Customer contacted tech support, confused...thinking that they had the
"wrong" or a "hacked" kernel, since the titles did not match.
What does the /etc/redhat-release say? grubby updates it based
directly on what's in there.
