package lilo 1:22.8-7ubuntu1 failed to install/upgrade:

Bug #367704 reported by cutsbyjav on 2009-04-27
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
lilo (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: lilo

I have 64bit Ubuntu 8.10. I did the upgrade to 9.04. I was asked if I wanted to use the Lilo option. I chose yes and had it automatically run. Then it did not install when all other packages where being installed. I use Synaptic 0.62.5. I expected the Lilo package to be installed automatically as the pop up recommended. I still have not rebooted but from what I read if I do the pc will not boot.
