Question about LILO


Does anyone know what the "resume" in the "append" section of lilo.conf does? Do you know what's supposed to be next to "resume"? Is it the swap partition?

Thanks.

I don't use this myself, but I believe the "resume" parameter is related to some new "software suspend" functionality. As I understand it, the suspend function will write the contents of memory to disk, and it will be reloaded the next time you boot up. Result = no need to restart whatever programs you were running, and your machine is returned to the exact same state it was in when you left it.
