Description of problem:
I was requested to open a new bug in bug #732058. I did a clean install of the Fedora 16 x86-64 GNOME Live CD and noticed that after it pulled in a new kernel (3.1.2-1) through the updates, it still kept booting the old kernel (3.1.0-7 according to uname -a). My /etc/default/grub looks like this:
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="rd.md=0 rd.lvm=0 rd.dm=0 quiet SYSFONT=latarcyrheb-sun16 rhgb rd.luks=0 KEYTABLE=us-acentos LANG=en_US.UTF-8"
All I did was change the timeout to 0 so I wouldn't get the menu and add i8042.reset=1 to work around a kernel bug which prevents my notebook from properly returning after it is suspended. Nothing else as far I know. My grub.cfg is attached as requested.
That grub.cfg is not the one you had after installing the kernel. You must have created a new boot loader configuration with grub2-mkconfig. Can you confirm that?
That is correct, I did use grub2-mkconfig because otherwise my two modifications to /etc/default/grub wouldn't have been picked up, right?
Ok, that crucial information makes it the same bug anyway.
