Description Steve Tate 1999-10-05 20:31:37 UTC
Upgrading the system (or just the lilo package) is killing
the old /etc/lilo.conf file, and not saving a copy in an
.rpmsave file.

The workaround is to make a backup of lilo.conf before you

The real fix is to set up /etc/lilo.conf as a %config file
in the rpm....
