Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 63240
Anaconda upgrade wrote invalid lilo.conf
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:41:53 EDT
Description of Problem:
Upgrading from 7.2 to a recent Skipjack build (internal 0409.1 isos) wrote an
invalid lilo.conf. I had a custom lilo entry for a non-rpm kernel, which
included a kernel append of the form
and the lilo.conf rewrite stripped out the quote marks leaving
This breaks lilo --- an append line with an "=" in it must be quoted.
This resulted in the lilo run aborting when the boot loader was updated, so on
the next reboot, I ended up with an old kernel being loaded, despite the fact
that anaconda had already deleted the /lib/modules for that old kernel.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install 7.2
2. Add an append="key=value" item to /etc/lilo.conf
3. upgrade to Skipjack.
Broken lilo.conf is written with the "key=value" unquoted.
lilo.conf should be usable.
Yep, thanks. Fixed in CVS.
