bad lilo.conf after upgrade
Last modified: 2007-03-26 23:43:41 EDT
After upgrade (from wolverine to 7.1, but I saw the same from 7.0 to
wolverine), I am left with a syntactically incorrect lilo.conf.
But after installtion, I had
# cat /etc/lilo.conf
The error is in the stale `default' and `label', I believe.
Did you modify the label in the LILO configuration screen?
Nope. I am not even sure I got a lilo configuration screen. The reason I know I
did not modify it even if I had one is because I always test the first upgrade
by not changing anything (including the list of upgradable packages).
We have not seen this in our internal testing. Was the system bootable after
Nope. But luckily I had my 7.0 bootfloppy, so I could fix lilo.conf.
I can't explain why that happened. We have not seen this in our internal
testing. I just tried this on my test machine and things worked fine.
