cath the traceback with the u1 target code, but I'm not
sure why the test install fails.

could you attach the lilo.conf?

Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2003-11-17 14:22:08 EST
It's on devserv, but it's been modified since then.

lilo config file
Comment 5 Adrian Likins 2004-01-20 14:15:50 EST
what kernels are installed for those machines?

did the preexisting lilo work? 
Comment 6 Bill Nottingham 2004-01-20 15:22:09 EST
On devserv, yes, the preexisting lilo did work. I'm guessing what
happened was just a too-long (or duplicate?) label.
Comment 7 Blurred Vision 2004-02-14 15:02:52 EST
I am receiving this error too, on a clean install RHEL3 the first 
time up2date is run... I have this problem on 3 prd systems aswell, 
all minimum install RHEL3 the first time I run up2date...

Any help I can provide (as I have 4 systems all exhibiting the same 
symptoms?)

What is the time frame likely to fix this? this is causing major bad 
mojo with my kickstarts...  

Any ideas?

there was a bug with labels of exactly 15 chars that
should be fixed in current errata releases
