Description Dan Hensley 2006-07-04 15:34:36 EDT
Description of problem:

For the past few kernel updates (I'm on 2.6.17-1.2139), the Grub titles have
simply been "Fedora Core".  All previous updates included the kernel version
number in the title.  Having the version number in the title is essential,
otherwise I get multiple entries in the Grub main page that just say "Fedora
Core".  It's hard to tell which one is which when booting.

How reproducible: 100%

bug in grubby ?
Comment 2 Christian Iseli 2007-01-22 05:47:23 EST
This report targets the FC3 or FC4 products, which have now been EOL'd.

Could you please check that it still applies to a current Fedora release, and
either update the target product or close it ?

It's fixed in FC6.  I skipped FC5 so I don't know about that one.
