Description Bryan Leopard 2001-07-12 09:32:40 EDT
Beta 1
The bootloader configuration screen does not give the user the option to 
select Linear mode addressing for LILO.
Comment 1 Matt Wilson 2001-07-12 10:52:04 EDT
linear is on by default.  Do you need a checkbox to disable it?
Comment 2 Matt Wilson 2001-07-12 10:52:57 EDT
Sorry, I take that back.  lba32 is on by default if it is detected.  if not,
linear is used.
Comment 3 Glen Foster 2001-07-13 18:20:29 EDT
This defect considered SHOULD-FIX for Fairfax gold-release.
Comment 4 Bryan Leopard 2001-07-16 17:04:31 EDT
We need linear mode on.
Comment 5 Michael Fulbright 2001-07-23 12:33:21 EDT
Is linear explicitely required?  What happens if lba32 is specified?  This
sounds like a firmware issue if so.
Comment 6 Bryan Leopard 2001-08-09 14:12:04 EDT
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.
Comment 7 Brent Fox 2001-08-15 00:05:50 EDT
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.
