Whenever Yum updates the kernel, there's a new set of (vmlinuz* initramfs*) files in /boot and the Grub config is updated to directly point to those new files.
Where is the setting that will force Yum to always create/update symlinks to the new files after such an update?
vmlinuz-3.12.6-300.fc20.x86_64 # HAVE
vmlinuz -> /boot/vmlinuz-3.12.6-300.fc20.x86_64 # WANT
initramfs-3.12.6-300.fc20.x86_64.img # HAVE
initramfs -> /boot/initramfs-3.12.6-300.fc20.x86_64.img # WANT
- A computer with two operating systems installed might have one master Grub with one entry for each system. The Fedora entry would point to symlinks because I'm not manually changing the config file whenever Fedora installs a new kernel.
- In two cases, the Fedora 20 installer failed to install Grub (and crashed). So when this happens, I install a dedicated Grub (not mounted in the Fedora installation) and have the same issue.
