/boot/grub/menu.lst is not a symlink. You will experience problems upgrading kernels.
/etc/sysconfig/kernel does not exist. You will experience problems upgrading kernels.
|Resolution||For /boot/grub/menu.lst , this can simply be fixed by running the below command as root:|
ln -s /etc/grub.conf /boot/grub/menu.lst
For /etc/sysconfig/kernel , this warning can be ignored.
/etc/sysconfig/kernel is config file for mkinitrd.. mkinitrd was replaced by dracut which throws config files to many directories according to the nature of the kernel module, this can be found in the man page "man dracut".
