Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 10551
Install builds lilo.conf erroneously when using space ' ' in label
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:55 EDT
I recently did a network install of RedHat 6.2 using the
text-based installer program. When prompted for lilo boot
label, I entered "redhat 6.2".
The system would not reboot from the hard driving, hanging
at the words:
I rebooted using a boot floppy. The lilo.conf file as built
by installer read:
Running /sbin/lilo produced:
Syntax error near line 8 in file /etc/lilo.conf
Changing the lilo conf file so I used "redhat_6.2"
worked for running lilo and for booting.

The future releases of the installer will not allow a space to be inserted in
