Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 46836
Lilo not installed - error in /etc/lilo.conf
Last modified: 2007-03-26 23:46:34 EDT
Description of Problem:
Beta1-installation on /dev/hda3 (29-421 cylinder on HD). Choosing lilo
instead of grub, bootloader on /dev/hda3 instead of mbr.
Lilo was not installed - had to boot from floppy. Got errors when trying
to run "lilo":
1) looks like lilo dont like the label:
Syntax error near line 8 in file /etc/lilo.conf
I corrected the label to "Red Hat Linux" (with quotes), this seems to
solve this problem, but:
2) when I now run lilo I get:
Added Red Hat Linux *
This is because you have "other=hda2" instead of "other=/dev/hda2"
Attachment: original /etc/lilo.conf created by installer, and the same
file after editing.
