Re: [dm-devel] LILO: Fatal: Sorry, don't know how to handle device 0xfe02



Hi Christophe,

I installed the attached files, did a

	'ACCEPT_KEYWORDS="~x86" emerge --deep lilo'

and lo and behold: LILO works. Thank you very much!
I want to hug you, kiss you, pay your depts!

In order to get even with you I'll report this to the Gentoo
developers. I hope they will adopt your patch soon in the stable
lilo ebuild.

Did you send this patch to the current maintainer of LILO?

Regards,
Toon.
