Description Gene Czarcinski 2001-07-04 05:35:40 EDT
Description of Problem:
This is related to #47891 but different.

With two ide drives already partitioned with a vfat partitions at hda1 and
hdb1, the /etc/lilo.conf was still bad even after changing the label from
"Red Hat Linux" to "Linux" so that lilo could handle it.  The problem
seemed to be that it wanted to make a boot entry fro hdb1 but with no label
at all.  Formally, having no label removed that entry.

How Reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. have two prepartitioned disks with vfat partitions as the first ones.
2. do an install with lilo as the boot loader and fixing the label

Actual Results:

Expected Results:

Do you still have (or can you get another of) the lilo.conf before and after
fixing it?  If not, can you the after lilo.conf and try to point out the difference?
Comment 2 Gene Czarcinski 2001-07-06 08:09:37 EDT
Without changing the "Red Hat Linux" label, no /etc/lilo.conf is created.

I am attaching fix1 (change label to Linux) and fix2 (manually deleting the last
two entries).

In previous versions, a partition without a label did NOT create an entry in
