grubby doesnt add default properly
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:06:55 EST
Description of Problem:
grubby seems to fail to add a "default=X" entry to the /boot/grub/grub.conf
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
see soon to be attached grub.conf
grubby --set-default /boot/vmlinuz-2.4.7-0.9.1
And see that the grub.conf does not include a default=X line.
Steps to Reproduce:
Created attachment 30415 [details]
grub.conf that fails to have it's "default=X" param set
grubby didn't exist until mkinitrd 3.2 or so... this case should be fixed as of
This is STILL BROKEN, even in RHEL3. Please please fix!
I'll pull my foot out of my mouth... and say that the above example
*However*, this doesn't:
grubby --set-default 2.4.7-0.9.1
Turns out, grubby from RHL 7.3 says STRING when explaining what should
come after --set-default. RHEL3's --help and man page now says
"kernel path". That's cool.
