Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 850901
kernel can produce invalid grub conf when installation interrupted
Last modified: 2014-01-10 10:07:40 EST
Description of problem:
when pkcon or yum or rpm is killed when installing it can easily happen that default option in grub will be without initrd in the end so one cannot boot default option anymore.
All this should be written after initrd was generated not prior.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.run pkcon install kernel
2.when you are somewhere around 60% execute in other terminal pkill pkcon
default version is 3.5.0 but initrd is missing in the end of 3.5.0 section and thus system unusable
kernel rpm shouldn't write that info to grub conf prior initrd is ready
This isn't possible with the way kernel upgrades are structured at all currently - which isn't to say that you're wrong, but this isn't a bug fix request, it's a major RFE, and needs to be filed in that context instead.
Development Management has reviewed and declined this request.
You may appeal this decision by reopening this request.
