Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 861536
pygrub command cannot process argument "--entry=0" correctly
Last modified: 2014-03-10 02:13:43 EDT
Description of problem:
file:xen/tools/pygrub/src/pygrub has a wrong condition judgement at line 796.
if idx is not None and idx > 0 and idx < len(g.cf.images):
The idx variable should be greater and equal with 0, because array item 0 store the first grub entry.
This cause the sel variable set to the default value due to previous codes.
sel = g.cf.default
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Host: rhel5.8 (kernel 341, xen 141)
Guest:rhel5.9(with grub < 1.0) snapshot1 PV i386(kernel 341, xen 141)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. prepare a pv guest with at latest 3 grub entry(not test grub2), let default entry not equal with 0 on /boot/grub/grub.cfg
2. # pygrub --entry=0 [image_name]
the output display the default entry
the output display the entry 0
