Lilo - Restore Failsafe mode
 
Hi, I would like to restore the "failsafe " mode to my lilo.conf file.

I obliterated it and just had Linux & Windows and you guessed it
mucked up my monitor settings and got a blank screen after boot.

All ok now but for future I think i need failsafe back !

Anyone know the lines to put back into lilo.conf and what you have to do to update lilo for the next boot ?

thanks



:newbie: :)

Something similar to this?

image=/boot/vmlinuz
label="failsafe"
root=/dev/hda7
initrd=/boot/initrd.img
append="failsafe acpi=ht resume=/dev/hda6 devfs=nomount"
read-only

To update lilo run

/sbin/lilo

as root after you've edited lilo.conf and saved it.
