Description Alex Bruno 2004-08-20 11:38:40 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4.3)

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):

How reproducible:

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

Additional info:

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.
