The Fedora update system reports this is fixed in grub2-1.99-6.fc16.


Peter Jones submitted a new grubby package yesterday. This seems to fix
bug #658387 (i.e., new-kernel-pkg creates a Dom0-style grub.cfg entry
if /etc/sysconfig/kernel contains "HYPERVISOR=/boot/xen.gz").

I have not yet tested this on Fedora 16. However, I did test on Fedora
15. In this case, bug #668063 is still in effect. That is, grubby creates
most of a GRUB record, but the "module initramfs-..." entry is missing.

Has anyone yet tested this new grubby package on Fedora 16 yet? Does
using GRUB 2 makes #668063 irrelevant?


I just added some more description to this bug.
