RFE: Allow user to tell Lilo to boot from > cylinder 1024
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:58 EDT
Lilo won't install when trying to install the linux root partition beyond
cylinder 1024. I know that Lilo is capable of handling this situation with
the -L option, but the installation program does not seem to support it. I
need to use the installation disk to access linux after the installation,
and then do "Lilo -L" to be able to use it.
In our testing there are motherboards (which claim via BIOS calls to support >
1024 cyl) which had bad
behaviour anyways. We're thinking about making this option available in the
I'm marking this a request for feature for now.
Moving to RESOVLED - DEFERRED from CLOSED - DEFERRED
