Description Telsa Gwynne 2001-02-09 08:20:42 UTC
The summary is a guess at the cause. Cyrix MediaGX, 32megs. Already had an old 6.9 beta on it, so did upgrade, via "text expert". Told it boot loader should go on MBR, tweaked the selection of packages it offered me, but didn't go near stuff like lilo, just dinked with my favourite MUA, etc. Rebooted, needed an -ac kernel to fix something, grabbed that, went to edit /etc/lilo.conf and um. The 2.4 kernel which should have been there wasn't mentioned in the file. Sure enough, although the new kernel had been installed, I was running a 2.2... /tmp/upgrade has "Upgrading kernel" and "Upgrading lilo". I find a kernel-BOOT rpm in the list of "not picked". Is this something I should have known about?

lilo never has edited config files on upgrades. This is the responsibility of the installer. I'm changing assingment to msw so that he can make sure this is a (most likely) already fixed issue in the installer.

Matt did your fix recently address this issue?
