Installer should not wipe-out original /etc/lilo.conf
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:54 EDT
It appears that the installer does little or nothing to merge the existing
/etc/lilo.conf with the new copy during an upgrade. On servers, this is
potentially problematic if a custom kernel is required for the server.
Better to migrate the existing "linux" stanza to "linux.old" and keep as
much else intact rather than generating an entirely new configuration.
Moved to future feature list.
Fixed for next release.
