Which bootloader? grub or LILO? don't use grub.
For lilo, the default label created by the kernel rpm is too long. You
need to shorten the label's name. This is also possible in the chroot.
For RH9??  Funny, i didn't run into this on any of the 5 boxes that
I've installed.  Also didn't run into it for RH-7.3.

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
lilo-21.4.4-13
lilo-21.4.4-20
kernel-2.4.18-14SGI_XFS_1.2a1
kernel-2.4.20-20_29.rh8.0.at
rpm-4.1-1.06
xfsprogs-2.3.5-0
[hollow@fileserver1 hollow ]$

The system is up2date'd.

    Harald
