Hmmm. I actually did not install the RH9 cds, only the RH8 ones. The
problem persists with the 2.4.20 rpms from atrpms, though.
Which problem and which platform (RH8.0 or RH9)? And is the problem
expected to be there or not (e.g. the atrpms kernel have exactly XFS
1.3.0 and nothing newer)? I obviously kinda lost the context ... ;)
Make sure you do have the latest (stable) atrpms bits, especially the
kernel and rpm itself (if you are referring to the O_DIRECT bug).
I install kernels with grub without any problems for quite some time
now. There are (were?) issues with the installer & grub, but I am not
sure you are referring to them.
Please add the output of
rpm -q kernel rpm xfsprogs
Ooops, sorry, for the confusion. I talk about lilo. The lilo.conf
entries created by the kernel rpm install has labels too long for lilo
to use. Installed RedHat version and relevant rpms:
[hollow@fileserver1 hollow ]$ cat /etc/redhat-release
Red Hat Linux release 8.0 (Psyche)
[hollow@fileserver1 hollow ]$ rpm -q lilo kernel rpm xfsprogs
[hollow@fileserver1 hollow ]$
The system is up2date'd.
