Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 76236
new-kernel-pkg creates lilo lables that are too long
Last modified: 2005-10-31 17:00:50 EST
Description of Problem:
While applying the 2.4.18-17.7.xsmp kernel errata, when the kernel called
new-kernel-pkg with that version as an argument, the script created a lilo.conf
entry that was too long for lilo to use.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Every machine running lilo that has had 2.4.18-17.7.xsmp applied has had this
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install the smp errata kernel
2. try to re-run lilo
Fatal: Label "2.4.18-17.7.xsmp" is too long
*** Bug 76437 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
next version of grubby will shorten (and uniqify) lilo labels automatically
amazing how few folks reported this problem. lilo must be dieing.
