Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 216367
Update to RHEL 4.4 breaks lilo-21 for Linux software RAID
Last modified: 2012-06-20 12:17:22 EDT
Description of problem: Upgrade to RHWEL 4.4 breaks lilo-21. Attempting to run
lilo after the upgrade results in:
"/dev/dis: no such device"
on systems using Linux software RAID.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
lilo-21.4.4-26.1 with RHEL 4.4
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Upgarde via yum t RHEL 4.4
2. Attempt to run lilo to pick up a new kernel.
See problem description
lilo runs with no problems.
This appears to be fixed as of lilo-22. There is some conversion of lilo.conf
required. There are several ways this can be accomplished but the easiest is
probably to include the following line:
in the common section of lilo.conf. In this case, the "boot drive" consists of
the mirror pair /dev/hde and /dev/hdg.
