the "default" ( as we have in grub.conf ) option of lilo.conf ???
i'm new to lilo.
posting my /etc/lilo.conf
but where is the option for default booting selection.....as we have "default" in grub.conf.??
It's been a while since I've seen LILO, however, as far as I can remember, there should be a line in lilo.conf similar to default in grub. Please see below, on this example I have a linux option to boot as default :). But then again it's been a while I saw a lilo.conf file:
but i can't see any "default" there
From the lilo.conf man page
If it's not there then the first image in the list is default.
If you want to change this, then add in "default=whatever" in the global section.
I tried both the methods.
1. in the global section i added a line ....default="whatever was the name of distro in lilo.conf"
2. instead of adding "default" line.......i cut paste the entries for a distro and placed it at first positions.
In both ways its working......
noticed one more thing that unlike in grub.conf......default=0 or default=1 doesn't work in case of lilo.conf.
the name should be specified instead of numeric value
thanks geeman and grayhound
