Description Frederick Bartlett 2001-02-18 04:29:01 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.76 [en] (Win98; U)

Note that I installed over 7.0. I did not update, since there's a bug there, too: see Bug 28202

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot into Linux from LILO	

Actual Results:  ... autorun DONE.
VFS: Mounted root (ext2 filesystem) readonly
Freeing unused kernel memory: 76k freed
FATAL: kernel too old

Expected Results:  Should have booted ...

I installed over 7.0 w/o repartitioning or reformatting.

We (Red Hat) should really try to resolve this before next release.

Comment 2 Michael K. Johnson 2001-02-21 15:52:09 UTC
This is a bug the installer; it's not creating /etc/lilo.conf

Comment 3 Michael Fulbright 2001-02-21 18:02:26 UTC
Did you reformat the filesystems?
