No "Linear" option for LILO during bootloader configuration
Last modified: 2005-10-31 17:00:50 EST
The bootloader configuration screen does not give the user the option to
select Linear mode addressing for LILO.
linear is on by default. Do you need a checkbox to disable it?
Sorry, I take that back. lba32 is on by default if it is detected. if not,
linear is used.
This defect considered SHOULD-FIX for Fairfax gold-release.
We need linear mode on.
Is linear explicitely required? What happens if lba32 is specified? This
sounds like a firmware issue if so.
Yes, we need linear mode on. The lba32 option works fine. Please put a note
on that page that states linear mode used when selecting lba32 option.
Linear mode is on by default. The only way to turn linear and LBA32 off is to
do a kickstart install and explicitly turn them off. So, this issue shouldn't
be a problem.
