Description of problem: 
Installed kernel-2.4.18-27.8.0.i686.rpm on a system which uses 
LILO as the boot loader.  The message  
  grubby fatal error: unable to find a suitable template 
was reported.  No entry was added to /etc/lilo.conf for the new 
kernel.   
 
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 
kernel-2.4.18-27.8.0.i686.rpm 
 
How reproducible: 
Didn't try 
 
Steps to Reproduce: 
1. 
2. 
3. 
     
 
Additional info: 
 
Added entry in lilo.conf myself and it booted OK, so the only  
problem seems to be the failure to set up lilo.conf.   
 
Kernel is from your security advisory RHSA-2003:098

Comment 1 Bugzilla owner 2004-09-30 15:40:42 UTC
Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem
persists.

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
