Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 5576
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:52 EDT
I installed a default GNOME workstation. Samba-client gets
installed, but there is no nmblookup included. The script
smbfind returns a fatal error.
Fixed in samba-2.0.5a-14, which will be in the next Raw Hide

Extremely annoying, happen in update mode from RH-6.0
It doesn't preserve it in lilo.conf.rpmorig

I had a 6.0 install on my system. I was using System
Commander (a commercial product) to handle loading the
multiple OS's I run (Linux, 98, NT).
I recently tried upgrading to 6.1. First time thru the
install, I figured I'd try doing an "upgrade" (I normally
do complete re-installs). I followed the graphical
installer instructions, and 6.1 was installed/upgraded.
When the system rebooted I found that LILO was setup on
my MBR, not on my Linux Partition (as I had been using).
Not exactly what I was expecting. During an upgrade, why
setup LILO on a partition where it does _not_ exist? I can
see on a new install (and the installer explicitly asks in
that case), but during an upgrade, presumably one does not
change the location of the existing boot loader. The
installer should _not_ _assume_ the location of the boot
loader. It should make a best effort to determine where to
install, and then ask if that is what I want.
Anyway, some more data points...
LILO had a 'dos' entry available, so I tried it out. That
got me into Win98 (not System Commander, and
co-incidentally the OS I booted before my upgrade attempt).
Curious thing though, when I rebooted after that System
Commander came up (and has since). I presume System
Commander "reinstalled" itself in the MBR somehow.
BTW, I things are really great otherwise, it even detected
my SB!Live card. Although I don't think it works under SMP
kernels yet, perhaps I try just to see, I'd be pleasantly
surprised if it did work.

upgrading from 6.0->6.1 overwrites lilo.conf without giving the victim an
opportunity to specify needed options, like linear.

You *REALLY* to prompt the user before installing LILO
information over an existing LILO configuration. Why not
look at the MBR to see whether LILO information is already
in place, then prompt the user?
By the way, I REALLY like the new GUI install! Keep up the
