Description Alexandre Oliva 2006-02-16 01:33:53 EST
I don't think there's any GUI way to switch between say Xen and non-Xen kernels
by default, nor is there any GUI way to tell the installer whether to change the
default kernel on upgrades.  I believe system-config-boot is the ideal tool for
such settings, in a separate Advanced screen.
Comment 1 John Poelstra 2008-07-09 01:12:26 EDT
harald isn't most of this implemented in one way or another now?
Comment 2 Harald Hoyer 2008-07-09 02:26:06 EDT
no, it isn't
Comment 3 Dmytro Taranovsky 2009-05-05 10:40:01 EDT
Even if we do not add additional GUI to system-config-boot, it should be changed to set UPDATEDEFAULT=yes (in /etc/sysconfig/kernel) when changing to a Fedora kernel from a non-Fedora one, and
UPDATEDEFAULT=no when changing to a non-Fedora kernel (such as Windows).  See Bug 498689.
