hi all, this may be off-topic, as lilo comes with slackware, but I have
created a patch to allow lilo to work with nvme disks. I am working on
patching liloconf to do the same.there are 2 questions I have, as lilo
is "no longer developed" - but works just fine - apart from for nvme
1. what is the best way of seeing if patrick is interested in the patch, and
2. is anyone interested in testing the patch?
At the moment I have patched the source for lilo, and after manually
configuring the lilo.conf it works for me, but I only have 1 nvme disk,
so am not sure how it presents for multiple nvme "disks".
dd if=/dev/nvme0n1 bs=512 count=1|grep LILO
comes up with a match. where previously I had to use sys/extlinux as
lilo refused to work.
specifically if someone has more than 1 nvme drive i am interested in
the output from
many thanks, Tim
