Description cvaughan 1999-08-24 16:14:50 UTC
On our pure scsi systems, when we updated our kernel's with
the kernel-2.2.5-22 rpms, rpm failed to update lilo.conf to
reflect the new kernel image as well as failed to create a
new initrd.

Rpm also deleted the old kernel image, which left lilo
pointing to a kernel image which no longer existed.

Comment 1 cvaughan 1999-08-24 16:28:59 UTC
(*almost forgot*) It also left the initrd entry in lilo.conf pointing
to the old /boot/initrd-2.2.5-15.img, which will not work with the
2.2.5-15 kernel.
