Description Maciej Michno 2003-04-17 02:03:02 EDT
Red Hat inux 8 + ext2 disks + upgrade to Red Hat Linux 9 + LILO 
During installation (upgrading process) leave the disks in ext2 (don't migrate to ext3) 
Don't migrate to grub, select the recomended option (update the existing boot 
manager -- LILO) 
At boot time the disks will have to be checked by e2fsck and this will not be 
possible: partitions are mounted read-write at startup -- the installation produced an 
erroneous lilo.conf file.

lilo.conf created by the installer

This is the file produced by the installation.
There was one more line in the linux section pointing to the initrd file, but I
have deleted it accidentally and don't have a backup version...

Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2003-04-22 22:00:50 EDT
There's a read-only in the section for the new kernel, so it should be right. 
Could you please attach the complete kernel messages for booting with the
original lilo.conf?
Comment 4 Maciej Michno 2003-04-30 07:38:03 EDT
Please, tell me exactly what do you need and how can I save these kernel 
Comment 5 Jeremy Katz 2003-07-28 19:59:33 EDT
Fixed in current code.
