I don't think any of this is out of date or strange. I wonder if i should do a
grub-install? Do you think that some how grub got messed up? Like I said
earlier it was working in the past. So I don't know why it's not working now.

Reinstalling grub should only be necessary as a last resort. You are not *supposed* to have to do anything after making changes to your grub.conf text file (so long as you haven't changed the physical disk drive its on). I don't use a splashimage, you might want to try and comment that out, and increase the timeout to something larger (like 30?) to give you enough time to look at the screen before it defaults to the 1.521 kernel....


You also might try changing the default line to default=1 and see if it boots the 1.494.2.2 kernel.... Is the 1.494.2.2 kernel still installed?

You might also want to consider removing the "rhgb quiet" options until you get this sorted out....

Very strange indeed. Having a kernel installed (or not) should have no effect on Grub since is runs before any kernel gets loaded.

Come to think of it, if none of the above helps, perhaps you *should* run grub-install again (and check for any errors).
