[rhelv6-list] new kernel is installed but grub was not updated properly

awk '{ if ($2 == "/") print $1; }' /etc/fstab in kickstart postinstall returns UUID=7a645002-36c7-4e39-bc32-c7051beda688


ls -l /dev/disk/by-uuid
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 10 Jan  5 12:35 7a645002-36c7-4e39-bc32-c7051beda688 -> ../../sda1

if I use  "  ln -s `awk '{ if ($2 == "/") print $1; }' /etc/fstab` /dev/root", it still does not work.

What am I doing wrong?

There is a workaround mentioned in bug 657257 which worked for me.

Put this in your postinstall before the yum update:

  ln -s `awk '{ if ($2 == "/") print $1; }' /etc/fstab` /dev/root
