don't remove custom grub entries
from https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=648565 (written by Nico Gruber):
Applying a kernel update will delete custom grub entries with this kernel and add a default one
Steps to Reproduce:
- duplicate a grub entry and add some parameter to the kernel command line
- update kernel, e.g. by doing auto-update with one of the provided kernel updates
Actual Results: the created custom entry in grub which uses the outdated kernel which has now been updated is removed, a default entry is created, e.g. "Desktop -- openSUSE 11.3 - 184.108.40.206-0.4"
Expected Results: all (custom) entries with the updated kernel should be changed in order to boot the new one - without changing either the name of the entry, nor any parameters
Custom entries can be there for various reasons, and I need them on nearly every system I use (see "use cases").
Please change perl-bootloader as described in "Expected Results" above. It should not remove or change any entry in menu.lst, except filename changes of kernel and initrd at a kernel update.
Because custom bootloader entries are used quite often, and it's very annoying if you have to re-add them at every kernel update.
Set user benefit
You can add different relations here, for example duplicate features, obs projects, urls...
To embedd an image you can simply upload it to paste.opensuse.org and add a relation to its raw url.

- Servers with RAID: fallback entry to boot from the second disk
- abusing ;-) a boot parameter like x11failsave to switch between two xorg.conf files without hacking the initscript
