Description James Manning 2000-06-13 13:33:34 EDT
Using beta1 pcmcia.img to FTP install against ftp.beta.redhat.com on Prostar 8680 laptop. Upgrade from RH 6.1. lilo.conf before upgrade included normal 2.2.12-20 stanza with label=linux, 2 2.3.x stanzas with labels of their kernel version, and other=/dev/hda1, label=win98 lilo.conf gets rewritten, but lilo itself either doesn't get run or (much more likely) fails to run successfully. The in-place lilo.conf already had an other=/dev/hda1 with label="win98". During the upgrade process it defaulted to "dos" as the label to give hda1, but I renamed it to win98. Apparently it didn't catch that a stanza was already in place with that label, and most likely lilo failed with the same message it failed with when I booted (into 2.2.12-20, the kernel from before the upgrade) and re- ran lilo to attempt to boot into the 2.2.14-100 kernel instead: Fatal: Duplicate label "win98" Fix will most likely involve duplicating the logic added (during 6.2beta iirc) to not repeat label=linux stanzas, I'd imagine.
