Grub points to wrong kernel...


Grub is on partition with openSuSE, and it points to the wrong Fedora kernel - FC8 kernel, not the F10 pre-upgrade kernel.

Here's menu from Fedora:

Quote:
# grub.conf generated by anaconda
#
# Note that you do not have to rerun grub after making changes to this file
# NOTICE: You do not have a /boot partition. This means that
# all kernel and initrd paths are relative to /, eg.
# root (hd0,3)
# kernel /boot/vmlinuz-version ro root=/dev/sda4
# initrd /boot/initrd-version.img
#boot=/dev/sda
default=1
timeout=5
splashimage=(hd0,3)/boot/grub/splash.xpm.gz
hiddenmenu
title Upgrade to Fedora 10 (Cambridge)
kernel /boot/upgrade/vmlinuz preupgrade repo=hd::/var/cache/yum/preupgrade stage2=hd:UUID=cc9cedeb-1f14-4cf7-8b4e-ce05acd8c4e7:/boot/upgrade/install.img ks=hd:UUID=cc9cedeb-1f14-4cf7-8b4e-ce05acd8c4e7:/boot/upgrade/ks.cfg
initrd /boot/upgrade/initrd.img

title Fedora (2.6.23.1-42.fc8) <---This is the current entry that's in the OTHER GRUB.
root (hd0,3)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.23.1-42.fc8 ro root=LABEL=/1 rhgb quiet
initrd /boot/initrd-2.6.23.1-42.fc8.img

Set the line with the 'default' setting to 0. The relevant part should be:
Quote:
...
#boot=/dev/sda
default=0
timeout=5
...
Entries are identified in a numbering scheme starting with 0, so the first entry has the index number 0.

I think I got you confused there T47marcell.

I do not boot with that menu. That's the Fedora menu that the update repository edited when I updated the Fedora version.

This is the menu that I boot with: (notice the LAST entry. I've copied and pasted, BUT, I don't know if that's right, and I do NOT want to find out that it's wrong...) The next to last entry points to the OLD Fedora kernel.

I took the entry selection in red, which I presumed was correct, and added root designation to it from grub command line:



title Upgrade to Fedora 10 (Cambridge)
root (hd3,0)
kernel /boot/upgrade/vmlinuz preupgrade repo=hd::/var/cache/yum/preupgrade stage2=hd:UUID=cc9cedeb-1f14-4cf7-8b4e-ce05acd8c4e7:/boot/upgrade/install.img ks=hd:UUID=cc9cedeb-1f14-4cf7-8b4e-ce05acd8c4e7:/boot/upgrade/ks.cfg
initrd /boot/upgrade/initrd.img

/thread!!!


How do I thank myself?
