I was upgrading from RH7.3. I had an older LILO installed (either that, or no
particular boot loader since this is a single boot system)....most likely I
already had LILO installed...most definitely not GRUB.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
If possible, set up a system that doesn't have a boot loader but is an upgrade
from RH7.3. If such a configuration isn't possible, it means I must've had the
RH7.3 LILO, so use that. Then upgrade to RH9.
Actual Results: Got the stack trace and installer exited.
Expected Results: Installer should've upgraded LILO nicely.
Could you attach the original lilo.conf file?
I can't give you the lilo.conf; I had to modify it to re-install Lilo. It's
most likely the case that my lilo.conf didn't have a "default=linux" line or
something. It is a single boot system, and there was probably only one image
section, so I probably didn't have a "default" line. But that's speculation
based on the error message -- I don't have the old lilo.conf. Sorry.
Fixed in CVS
I'm going through Bugzilla closing some bugs that have been marked as Modified
for some period of time. I believe that most of these issues have been fixed,
so I'm resolving these bugs as Rawhide. If the bug you are seeing still exists,
please reopen this report and mark it as Reopened.
