Re: Fedora, grub/lilo, and software-RAID



Can I second the request to keep lilo around?

Until it becomes possible to duplicate lilo -R safely, grub hasn't surpassed lilo's features and can't (imho) replace lilo completely. Availability as a package that's not generally included in any installation profiles but can be selected specifically during install would be an excellent compromise.

I have a few machines on which I've grown to love Lilo on the MBR and grub on the chain-loaded partitions. It's beautiful. It's magic.

Hello,

I just read that Fedora is going to ditch lilo, leaving grub. Grub is
great for many systems, but it's a nightmare for people booting on
software-RAID. I strongly suggest that lilo still be included in Fedora
until grub becomes able to install properly on software-RAID
boot-partitions.
