grubby needs to respect default kernel on remove
Last modified: 2010-11-10 12:35:30 EST
Description of problem:
grubby doesn't set default= based on kernel in /etc/sysconfig/kernel when a kernel is removed
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. have two flavors of kernel installed, e.g. kernel and kernel-xen
2. set the default kernel type to kernel-xen
3. make sure it's the default kernel
4. yum install a newer kernel-xen (grubby updates, new kernel-xen is now default)
5. yum remove that newer kernel-xen
plain kernel is now the default (default=0)
previously default kernel-xen is the default
(or, in step 4, rpm install a newer kernel-xen)
grubby has always worked this way.
Development Management has reviewed and declined this request. You may appeal
this decision by reopening this request.
Sure, why not? "It's always been broken" seems like a poor reason to close a bug.
