re: lilo patch to support DMraid



Gerte,

First of all, my lilo.conf looks nothing like yours, but it worked just
fine with lilo 22.6 and your patch ;)

I'm running FC3rc1 and just ran lilo and rebooted without any problems!!
And I was thinking I had to run FC1 just for lilo etc.  As soon as FC3
comes out, I'm switching my entire system to FC3.

What my lilo.conf looks like:
lba32
prompt
map = /boot/map
timeout = 50
default = FedoraCore1
install = /boot/boot.b
boot = /dev/mapper/sil_0405073203171

image = /mnt/fedora1/boot/vmlinuz-2.4.22-1.2199.nptl_52.rhfc1.at
        read-only
        label = FedoraCore1
        initrd = /mnt/fedora1/boot/initrd-2.4.22-1.2199.nptl_52.rhfc1.at.img
        append = "hda=ide-scsi hdc=ide-scsi rhgb root=LABEL=fc1/"

image = /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.8-1.603
        read-only
        label = FedoraCore3
        initrd = /boot/initrd-2.6.8-1.603.img
        append = "hda=ide-scsi hdb=ide-scsi rhgb root=LABEL=/"

other = /dev/mapper/sil_0405073203171_p1
        label = WindowsXP

Comments:
- As you can see, I installed lilo in the boot record (boot=)
- I use ext2 labels for root, and that works with dmraid under FC3
  (already used that with the old lilo from FC1).
- Windows and FC1 will boot with this lilo.conf as well.

Kind regards,

Mark
