Currently on kernel 3.1.0-7 by the way (last kernel which was installed before 3.1.1-1), which works fine.

grub config

Can it be a problem with the grub config tool? Attached grub.cfg, seems to be missing the initrd entry for the 3.1.1 boot entry.

Yes, that's exactly it.  Was there an error message during the yum update of the kernel?  The initramfs is generated after that, and grubby should have added a line there for it.
Comment 4 Jonas Wielicki 2011-11-16 11:55:30 EST
I less'd messages and yum.log, I was able to find the messages which relate to installing kernel-3.1.1-1, but there are no errors around it.
Comment 5 Mads Kiilerich 2011-11-25 10:58:53 EST
Please try to reproduce the problem. Uninstall the latest kernel, verify that grub.cfg contains valid entries for 3.1.0-7, run 'yum update' and see if you get the same problem or any error messages.
Comment 6 Jonas Wielicki 2011-11-25 11:01:34 EST
I was not able to reproduce. When installing kernel-3.1.1-2, grubby did what it's supposed to do. I was able to boot fine.

Please reopen or file a new bug report if you see it again.
