Getting Grub to change default kernel load FC16

Hi all,

My system seems to have Grub 1.99 and I want to change the default kernel.

I thought I could do it like this:

Code:
vi /etc/default/grub
GRUB_DEFAULT=0
in order to always choose the first entry on my list.

I also tried:

Code:
vi /etc/default/grub
GRUB_DEFAULT=’Fedora (3.3.0)’
My reference is section 5.1 here:
http://www.gnu.org/software/grub/man...-configuration

Originally, it was set to:

Code:
GRUB_DEFAULT=saved
but when I make a new choice on bootup the system does not retain it following the next reboot, so I am not sure if that's working either - at least not as I expect it to.

Can anyone help? I should point out that my kernel loads up just fine as long as I manually choose it during the 5-second bootup window.

Many Thanks!

Re: Getting Grub to change default kernel load FC16

/etc/default/grub:

GRUB_TIMEOUT=5
GRUB_DISTRIBUTOR="Fedora"
GRUB_DEFAULT=saved
GRUB_SAVEDEFAULT=true
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="rd.md=0 rd.lvm=0 rd.dm=0 KEYTABLE=us quiet SYSFONT=latarcyrheb-sun16 rhgb rd.luks=0 LANG=en_US.UTF-8 pci=use_crs"

I guess you already know how to do this:
grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg

Reboot and select your kernel. The next reboot the last kernel you were
running on will boot again.
