Description Guangze Bai 2012-08-24 04:43:42 EDT
Description of problem:

This is found from https://beaker.engineering.redhat.com/recipes/605021
<task name="/distribution/kernelinstall" role="STANDALONE">
	<param name="KERNELARGNAME" value="kernel"/>
	<param name="KERNELARGVERSION" value="2.6.18-338.el5"/>
	<param name="KERNELARGVARIANT" value="up"/>

IIRC, "up" can determine PAE or not automatically. This recipe initially installed a PAE kernel since the box has more than 4G RAM, but kernelinstall testcase installed a non-PAE kernel.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Expected results:
Determine accordingly:
<4G, install non-PAE kernel
>4G, install PAE kernel

oh, 'up' is supposed to mean non-PAE kernel while 'PAE' is PAE kernel. I don't know much about the history. Sorry for the noise.
