Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 633234
Previous grub entry is not overwritten after upgrade with creating new bootloader
Last modified: 2010-10-06 18:02:53 EDT
Description of problem:
Tested F14-beta-tc1 with
After upgrade, it still booted to F13 system which had already been replaced. In grub.conf, it just added F14 entry and the default one was still F13.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
The previous grub entry(F13) should be replaced by the upgraded one(F14) in grub.conf.
Consider it's a beta blocker since:
10. The installer must be able to successfully complete an upgrade installation from a clean, fully updated default installation of the previous stable Fedora release, either via preupgrade or by booting to the installer manually
Created attachment 446888 [details]
If it is by design that both entries should be in grub.conf, then the upgraded one should be on the top or booted by default
Discussed at today's interim blocker review meeting. We agreed that this is a blocker. anaconda team is treating it as a high priority for investigation / fix.
I'm testing a fix for this now. I want to make sure it doesn't have side-effects so it may take a while.
Even if this doesn't get fixed I don't think it should block -- the new grub.conf is written, it just doesn't put the new kernel at the top of the list.
You can work around it by selecting the correct kernel manually from the GRUB menu.
Fixed in commit 861c91d5089b244e0d8831dea3547b664d18b2d3
