lilo-uuid-diskid - convert boot / root options to diskid and uuid in
lilo-uuid-diskid [-h] [-v] [lilo.conf]
This script looks for the boot block device or boot partition and
create the right diskid or uuid as boot option. Then it looks for all
root partitions and create the right uuids as root options.
These conversions are necessary for use with newer kernel (>= 2.6.26)
if it use the libata module for parallel and serial ATA interfaces of
block devices (i. e. hard disks with IDE or SATA interface, usbsticks).
-h Print a brief help.
-v Print verbose messages.
Lines in the configuration file /etc/lilo.conf:
#boot = /dev/sda
boot = /dev/disk/by-id/ata-SAMSUNG_SV1604N_S01FJ10X999999
#root = /dev/sda1
root = "UUID=/dev/disk/by-uuid/18843936-00f9-4df0-a373-000d05a5dd44"
