Description Andi Kleen 2010-07-11 10:40:15 EDT
I have a grub config that defaults to booting another partition.

Everytime the kernel is updated the grub updater changes that back
to the first kernel.

When the default in grub is set to a non fedora kernel it should never change that.
Comment 1 Chuck Ebbert 2010-07-13 15:23:45 EDT
Just edit /etc/sysconfig/kernel and set UPDATEDEFAULT=no

Doing that automatically is probably too difficult to get right for everyone.
Comment 2 Andi Kleen 2010-07-13 16:11:24 EDT
if (default points to vmlinuz-$(uname -r)) 
   do not update

not difficult at all.
