Description of problem:
Upgrading from 7.3 to 9. All packages update. When installing boot
loader, a bug report window pops up. I have tried the upgrade twice
and had the same result each time.
I have two drives to use for system disk. I run off sdb1 and copy it
to sda1. I boot distribution disk1 and upgrade sda1. This leaves me
with a good disk sdb1 to use, so I have not wiped out my only system disk.
Following the above failure, sda1 will not boot.
Contents of /etc/lilo.conf prior to upgrade:
nacdump.txt was preserved on floppy and can be sent.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.copy system disk sdb1 to sda1
2.boot distribution CD 1
3.upgrade 7.3 to 9 on sda1
I have bypassed the problem by:
1. copying the system disk sdb1 to sda1
2. modifying the /etc/lilo.conf on sda1 to eliminate the RedHat7.3 stanza
3. boot distribution CD 1 and indicate no boot loader configuration on
the appropriate query screen
The upgrade was successful, although the boot loader was modified and
the boot block on disk was changed to boot sda1.
Could you attach the anacdump.txt?
