NAME

       lilo-uuid-diskid - convert boot / root options to diskid and uuid in lilo.conf.

SYNOPSIS

       lilo-uuid-diskid [-h] [-v] [lilo.conf]

DESCRIPTION

       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).

OPTIONS

       -h  Print a brief help.

       -v  Print verbose messages.

EXAMPLES

       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"
