Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 137106
grubby doesn't set default kernel properly when removing kernels
Last modified: 2014-01-21 17:50:24 EST
I have a RHEL3u3 system using grub that had two kernels installed.
The first in the grub.conf was an smp kernel, the second was a up
kernel. The default line in grub.conf said 'default=0'.
I ran 'rpm -e kernel-smp' which removed the first kernel in the
grub.conf. Afterwards, the smp entry was gone from grub.conf, but the
default line read 'default=1', which doesn't actually exist.
