Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 10388
Systems with IDE and SCSI, assumption is made about the boot drive
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:55 EDT
The installer assumes that just because I have an IDE drive in my SCSI
system that lilo should be installed in either the MBR of the IDE drive,
or the superblock of the scsi drives linux partition. Most/ALL newer scsi
systems allow you to boot SCSI first, and now I'm stuck booting from a
floppy drive until I can get a copy of a lilo.conf (didnt even think about
the fact that the lilo.conf wouldnt be created if i just created the boot
disk instead) I guess the temporary fix is to have people install to the
MBR of their IDE system, boot with the floppy and then modify the
lilo.conf and rerun lilo. Hey, whoever see's this, send me a copy of your
lilo.conf file! I don't feel like spending 30 minutes writing my own
hoping i got all the options right for use with the redhat kernel rpms.
The option to pick IDE or SCSI booting is on the future feature list.
