Re: Update from FC4 to FC5 stole my kernel

I just ran an upgrade on a "generic" FC4 installation to update it to FC5 off
of a set of cdroms.  Everything seemed to go ok, but when I reboot at the end
of the installation instead of the pretty graphic Grub screen that I've had
up until now, I get the text-only Grub screen.  The only kernel listed on the
screen is the SMP kernel, the single-processor kernel is not listed at all.
When it tries booting, I get "Error 15 - File not found".

I tried upgrading again and it goes through some of the motions but I still end
up at the same place.
I can boot the rescue mode and see the filesystem on the hard drvie.

Where do I go from here?

I had the same problem. It seems that you NEVER update anything with FC5. That process is broken. It looked real odd on my laptop FC4 to FC5 but it worked for some reason. That made me try on this computer where it failed and come to think of it Grub on the laptop had just 2 entries.

   But it appears in general that FC5 will screw up any upgrade.
