Description Chris Ricker 2001-03-25 20:00:50 EST
I upgraded from 7.0 to qa0322.  My lilo.conf before the upgrade looked like:

boot=/dev/hde1
map=/boot/map
install=/boot/boot.b
delay=20
prompt
timeout=50
verbose=2
message=/boot/message
linear
default=linux24

image=/boot/vmlinuz-2.4.3-pre6
        label=linux24
        read-only
        root=/dev/hde6
        append="video=matrox:vesa:0x118"
        #append="video=matrox:vesa:0x118 mem=128M ide0=ata66 ide0=dma ide1=dma"

image=/boot/vmlinuz-2.4.2
        label=linux24-old
        read-only
        root=/dev/hde6
        append="video=matrox:vesa:0x118"
        #append="video=matrox:vesa:0x118 mem=128M ide0=ata66 ide0=dma ide1=dma"



After the upgrade, it looked like:

boot=/dev/hde1
map=/boot/map
install=/boot/boot.b
delay=20
prompt
timeout=50
verbose=2
message=/boot/message
linear
default=linux
        #append="video=matrox:vesa:0x118 mem=128M ide0=ata66 ide0=dma ide1=dma"
        #append="video=matrox:vesa:0x118 mem=128M ide0=ata66 ide0=dma ide1=dma"

image=/boot/vmlinuz-2.4.3-pre6
        label=linux24
        read-only
        root=/dev/hde6
        append="video=matrox:vesa:0x118"

image=/boot/vmlinuz-2.4.2
        label=linux24-old
        read-only
        root=/dev/hde6
        append="video=matrox:vesa:0x118"

image=/boot/vmlinuz-2.4.2-0.1.32smp
        label=linux
        read-only
        root=/dev/hde6

image=/boot/vmlinuz-2.4.2-0.1.32
        label=linux-up
        read-only
        root=/dev/hde6


Notice the way commented lines were moved for no good reason....

Jeremy has rewritten the bootloader code, and this should be handled.
