Topic: [SOLVED]Latest lilo doesn't support UUID
I have installed two OSes on separate disks on my desktop.
One has Slackware 14.2 (32b) and the other one Absolute beta3 (64b).
When i installed Absolute Slackware's disk was not connected so Absolute's installer saw only one disk
(for that moment sda).
After finishing the installation i connected the disk with Slackware on it (now Slackware is sda and Absolute is sdb)
I then edited the file /etc/fstab on Slackware changing the root= /dev/sda line to root = "UUIDXXX..." and ran the lilo -C /etc/lilo.conf command.
Slackware booted fine.
The same action on absolute gives a kernel panic.
Slackware's lilo accepts and adds absolute as a second option on boot screen after i added
this lines in /etc/lilo.conf file
root = "UUID=xxxxxx........"
Absolute's lilo Adds only Absolute
