Description rhbugs 1999-05-28 13:04:40 UTC
On upgrading a RH5.2 alpha system to RH6.0 the installer
had created a new kernel which it had put on the system
in the /boot directory.  However it didn't tell me
what the path name of the new kernel was and thus I didn't
know what to tell my MILO.

(The problem was compounded by the fact that the old kernel
- 2.2.1 - hung while running some of the daemons the upgrade
had installed)

Comment 1 David Lawrence 1999-06-02 22:42:59 UTC
We should probably have some message pop up during the alpha installer
stating the new path for booting in milo. Until that time, you can use
ls in milo to get directoy listings on you drives or even better is to
upgrade your current milo to the version provided on the 6.0 CD that
allows for a few new features. These are explained at
Thank you for the suggestion.
