grubby fatal error: unable to find a suitable template


#note how menu.lst is a normal file.  It should be a symlink to grub.conf
#because of this grubby will use grub.conf which does not match the current setup in menu.lst used for booting

#to fix it you need to move menu.lst to grub.conf and make a symlink to menu.lst from grub.conf
cd /boot/grub
mv menu.lst grub.conf
ln -s grub.conf menu.lst

 

Now see that menu.lst is a symlink and the kernel will install.
