Description Alan Shutko 2001-02-10 02:46:38 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux 2.4.0-0.99.11 i686; en-US; 0.7)

Upgrading my system from RHL7.0, I chose lilo to run and accepted the
default configuration of lilo with a linux and dos.  Almost ran the
install, realized I'd like to go back and choose what packages were
upgraded, and backed up till I could choose whether to customize packages.
 Didn't end up changing the upgraded packages, and continued through the

Lilo ended up getting ran, but it used my old lilo.conf (although it
deposited a lilo.conf.rpmsave which was bytewise identical).

Reproducible: Didn't try.  Hard to revert an upgrade.  8^)

Actual Results:  Result: It booted my default 2.2.18 kernel, and aborted
(kernel not new enough).  Fortunately, I had a 2.4.1 test kernel in that
conf, so I could boot with that.

Expected Results:  It should have added a default entry for the new kernel,
at least.

So far unable to reproduce.

Comment 8 Glen Foster 2001-03-02 18:06:33 UTC
Our installer team-lead thinks we should really fix this before next release.

Comment 9 Michael Fulbright 2001-03-06 20:26:32 UTC
Still no reproducable test case.

Comment 10 Erik Troan 2001-03-16 13:54:56 UTC
msw fixed this (it's a dup of another bug regarding upgrades from 3.0.3)
