Hi list,

... after the latest SLES9 (ppc64) kernel updates from 2.6.5-7.111.19 to
2.6.5-7.145 on an IBM js20 (blade) and a reboot , uups , the system won't
come up ?!...

Elapsed time since release of system processors: 0 mins 13 secs

Config file read, 213 bytes
Config file error: Syntax error near line 2 in file yaboot.cnf
Syntax error or read error config
Welcome to yaboot version 1.3.11.SuSE
Enter "help" to get some basic usage information
: Unable to parse

As help and to see the system again i did this:
Booted into rescue mode and back to the disk. Changed the yaboot.cnf manually.

In yaboot.conf line 2 there is : parameter=
This is wrong.

Now my theorie is, that maybe in /etc/lilo.conf is something .. lets say, not so good. Or maybe the script /sbin/lilo has a bug.
Until now i located /sbin/lilo as evil baby and changed the following lines :
--------------------------- /sbin/lilo -----------------------
# starting the work and write the yaboot.conf
echo "# header section"
echo "# partition = ${yaboot_part##*:}"
--------------------------- /sbin/lilo -----------------------

Now it works fine.
Anyone ever seen this ? Any good idea how to fix it permanently (without misusing the rescue cd all the time ..)
