NAME

       liloconfig - create new lilo.conf file (with diskid and uuid)

SYNOPSIS

       liloconfig [-h] [-v] [-f] [-u] [lilo.conf]

DESCRIPTION

       liloconfig is an simple program for creating a new lilo.conf file.
       After creating the new configuration file you must execute
       '/sbin/lilo'.

       liloconfig use the lilo.example.conf file as template. In the final
       lilo.conf file you find many useful comments for custom changes.

       Please pay attention about error messages if liloconfig cannot find any
       images (/boot/vmlinuz*) oder image symlinks (/vmlinuz, /vmlinu.old).
       Then you need to search for images by ourself and make some changes in
       the '/etc/lilo.conf' file. Otherwise no bootloader can be installed
       with '/sbin/lilo'.

OPTIONS

       -h  Print a brief help.

       -v  Print verbose messages.

       -f  Force overriding existing lilo.conf.

       -u  Force overriding/update of boot line in lilo.conf.
