Description of problem:
Upgrade from RH 6.2 to 7.2.
Installation on SCSI hdd, upgraded to EXT 3 fs, selected GRUB loader, installed
upgrade packages, post installation - Anaconda outputs error when installing
GRUB bootloader. Anaconda reported a possible bug.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
System doesn't boot-up, bootloader hangs on LI.
Booted of CD into rescue mode, looked at lilo.conf - still the old file, no
Were you able to save the error dump output to floppy?
Sorry I didn't but I did solve the problem.
It isn't bug!
The lilo.conf file had the immunitable flag set... so I had to remove it:
chattr -i /etc/lilo.conf
All working now
