  1. Bug#499115: linux-image-2.6.24-etchnhalf.1-686: installation fails to run Lilo, causing hang on reboot

    Package: linux-image-2.6.24-etchnhalf.1-686
    Version: 2.6.24-6~etchnhalf.5
    Severity: important


    After installing the security update for linux-image-2.6.24-etchnhalf.1-686 dated Sept. 11, 2008, the system failed to boot the updated kernel. I use Lilo on this particular machine and on reboot, the system froze on the 'Loading Linux...' line.

    I had previously updated other systems with the same kernel successfully, so I focused on the differences between those systems and this one. Since Lilo (instead of grub) was an obvious one, I manually ran the 'lilo' command to see if that would fix things. Sure enough, it did.

    There's another bug report on this for the amd64 kernel (#496354) but I'm creating another one so that the bug doesn't get relegated to an amd64 quirk. I'm running a P4 2.8GHz CPU.

    I know fewer people are using Lilo these days but it used to be the default boot loader for Debian. As such, upgraded systems will be particularly vulnerable to this bug. This system was originally installed with 'woody'.

    Thanks.

    Regards,
    Ed

    As far as I can tell, there's nothing wrong with my /etc/kernel-img.conf.

    $ cat /etc/kernel-img.conf
    # Do not create symbolic links in /
    Do_Symlinks = Yes

    The default for do_bootloader is YES according to the man page for
    kernel-img.conf.

    It has been years since this machine was upgraded from woody. It has
    also been years since it was upgraded from sarge (to etch). I'm pretty
    sure I read the release notes (as I usually do) when doing those upgrades.

    Something seemingly changed in the most recent kernel to cause this bug.
    I don't recall ever having to run lilo manually before. IIRC, there's
    usually a prompt to run the boot loader at the end of the kernel
    installation, which did not appear.

    Thanks for your help.

    Regards,
    Ed
