Like learning to drive a stick, it becomes second nature before too

"supporting Lilo" was pointless.

Felix, using the same argument, when lilo really is that easy, why
wasn't it kept? No, that argument doesn't hold water.


adding for grub the tab auto-completion that makes it's use very handy.

That said if lilo works, why remove it?

I have to say that both lilo/grub and xfs setup are broken in 11.1.

I just experiment yesterday.

* If one clic ok when warned that lilo is not supported, the lilo
option keeps showing as active, lilo is installed and all continue as
if lilo was working, but it's impossible to edit the config file (with
YaST). If Lilo is really unsupported, the YaST choice should be "grub
or no boot loader" only

* after trying some xfs config (no booting), I couldn't mount the root
xfs partition from the rescue console, even when xfs module was
loaded. I had a curious messages "/dev/sdb3 already mounted or /mnt
busy" (or something like this).

* In repair mode (YaST install), I could launch partition manager,
delete partitions but not edit the mount point

I have to leave home for two days now and will make more experiments
when back.
