lilo dos entry misses table = line
Last modified: 2015-01-07 18:41:01 EST
After doing an upgrade on my laptop my lilo.conf looked like this:
The last entry should ofcourse be:
The "table=" line is only appropriate for some DOS installations. There are
others that the "table=" line would cause the lilo installation to fail. We err
on the side of lilo running to completion in this case.
Afaik, all previous versions of RH did add the table = line, besides that afaik
most systems won't boot into dos without this line.
For a new user, not having his multiboot working is going to be a big pain, and
a very negative linux experience.
For an experienced user this is an annoyance too, since he expects it to work
(it has always worked with previous versions)
So looking from the element of the least surprise, and in its a .x release, so
letts not change any majro principle. I would like you to rethink this.
