Description David Lawrence 2001-03-09 17:45:26 UTC
Encountered a problem with lilo.conf when upgrading a 3.0.3 system to
qa0308.0.  The lilo.conf that anaconda wrote would not boot properly since
the old 3.0.3 kernel was still
trying to load. Here is the lilo.conf from the 3.0.3 system before upgrade
(taken from lilo.conf.rpmsave)

boot=/dev/hda
map=/boot/map
install=/boot/boot.b
prompt
timeout=50
image=/vmlinuz
	label=linux
	root=/dev/hda5
	read-only


Here is the lilo.conf as written by anaconda for post reboot

boot=/dev/hda
map=/boot/map
install=/boot/boot.b
prompt
timeout=50
message=/boot/message
linear
default=linux

image=/vmlinuz
	label=linux
	root=/dev/hda5
	read-only

As you can see the old kernel is still being used as the default image. It
should read

image=/boot/vmlinuz

to boot the new 2.4.2 kernel instead of the old 1.2.13 kernel.
