Description paulw 2000-07-05 06:32:38 EDT
The lilo.conf file is installed referencing the 
specific kernel to boot, not vmlinuz; therefore 
lilo.conf needs to be updated when installing a 
new kernel.

This is not happening when the Update Agent loads 
a new kernel. Furthermore, is it a good idea to 
delete the old kernel before the new one is tested 
on a machine, because this is happening.

I'd like to add, the folks at RedHat are doing great work.

This bug is still present in the latest RedHat 7.0 update kernel-*i686.rpm
downloaded 20/02/2001. Can the priority be raised please so that updates
don't continue to fail. Updates work very nicely except for this.

we don't support kernel upgrades with up2date as of now; that is why kernel is
in the exclude list as shipped.
