Description of problem:
When upgrading using the up2date tool, from kernel 2.4.18-24.7.x to
2.4.18-27.7.x I get the following error after changing the /etc/lilo.conf file
and running lilo
Fatal: Kernel doesn't support initial RAM disks
Here is my lilo file

prompt
timeout=50
default=linux
boot=/dev/hda
map=/boot/map
install=/boot/boot.b
message=/boot/message
lba32

image=/boot/vmlinux-2.4.18-27.7.x
	label=linux
	root=/dev/hdb2
	read-only
	initrd=/boot/initrd-2.4.18-27.7.x.img	

image=/boot/vmlinuz-2.4.18-24.7.x
        label=linux.bak
        root=/dev/hdb2
        read-only
        initrd=/boot/initrd-2.4.18-24.7.x.img

other=/dev/hda1
	optional
	label=DOS


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
lilo-21.4.4-14

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.install using rpm or automatically using up2date the new kernel 2.4.18-24.7.x
2.using up2date the program crashes
3.edit mannualy the /etc/lilo.conf file and run lilo
    

Actual Results:  Fatal: Kernel doesn't support initial RAM disks

Expected Results:  Added linux *
Added linux.bak
Added DOS

Additional info:

I don't use any RAM disks as far as I know and haven't played with recompiling
the kernel.  The default one always used to work.

Could you verify that the kernel package was installed correctly by running `rpm
-V kernel`?
Comment 2 Marcin 2003-03-28 09:40:16 EST
[draminsk@164-tor-1 draminsk]$ rpm -V kernel-2.4.18-27.7.x
.M......   /dev/shm

up2date put in the vmlinux instead of the vmlinuz in the lilo.conf file.
