I always have a knack for testing and deploying Linux/BSD distros on my Big Black Box.

But somewhere last week I pulled in the latest kernel, configured and compiled in less than an hour.

Some hours later when I remembered to reboot , to my distraught I realised that I managed to disfigure my lilo.conf file and bricked totally my slackware install.

reboot_cmd /sbin/systemctl reboot -i
like this, when I request shutdown all applications exit and then slim restart
