Description of problem:
I have a phoebe2 system upgraded to latest rawhide. When I try to upgrade a
kernel to 2.4.20-2.49 I get an error message:
grubby fatal error: unable to find a suitable template
I tried it with mkinitrd 3.4.35 (comes with phoebe2), 3.4.36 (from up2date) and
I didn't modify grub.conf manually (except changing timeout from 10 to 3 seconds).
I had same problems upgarding kernel to 2.4.20-2.48, but somehow I managed to do
it with one of the mkinitrd versions.
My system is Pentium166 MMX if it matters.
My grub.conf file:
# grub.conf generated by anaconda
# Note that you do not have to rerun grub after making changes to this file
# NOTICE: You have a /boot partition. This means that
# all kernel and initrd paths are relative to /boot/, eg.
# root (hd0,0)
# kernel /vmlinuz-version ro root=/dev/hda2
# initrd /initrd-version.img
title Red Hat Linux (2.4.20-2.48)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.4.20-2.48 ro root=LABEL=/
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Upgrade to rawhide kernel
Actual Results: grubby reports an error and does not modify grub.conf
Expected Results: upgrade kernel
Does this happen with the final Red Hat Linux 9 release?
