Description steven.carbonari 1999-05-10 16:24:12 EDT
On an Intel Sitka Platform (4-way Xeon, Symbios 896
on-board SCSI) after initial installation the install kernel
panic's (not able to find root filesystem).  I have talked
to Doug Ledford at Red Hat and he says this is a known
problem and was thought to be fixed in a beta version.  We
have recreated the problem on several Sitka's at Intel
using Red Hat 6.0 Gold.

It seems that something goes wrong in parsing the lilo.conf file. If
I use the lilo.conf file installed by default everything works fine.
But if I replace the
prompt
timeout=50
sequence
with
delay=20
the kernel panics (not able to find root file system). This is on a
Dell Inspiron 3200.

A new lilo version is now under testing from Werner Almesberger.  We
will be working with him on this and should have an updated version
soon.  The test version currently available is lilo-22dev0 and is
available from the ftp site
ftp://lrcftp.epfl.ch/pub/people/almesber/lilo/lilo-22dev0.tar.gz
