Oh, nothing. I'm sure these are just rumours. Nevermind...

XavierP dropped a few hints about it in a post somewhere a while ago. He couldn't go into details, sworn to secrecy. Sounded similar to masonic oaths and initiation. I may have said too much already...(looks over shoulder nervously)

Oh, you mean that. Let me say it this way: I know the preferred brand of beer.

The "compact" line isn't really needed. Just run

Code:
lilo -v -c -v
Speeds up the boot process a lot!

Can you explain the double -v ? Typo or really needed ?

What's the difference between having 'compact' in lilo.conf and using -c ?
Is the only advantage of having 'compact' inside the file that it avoids using the -c switch at every lilo reload ?

The -v option can be added up to 5 times, with higher numbers increasing the verbosity of lilo. You can also use -v n, where n is a number from 1 to 5.

All this info and more can be found using
Code:
man lilo

Shame on me, didn't read the man in its whole ... Now it's clearer, adding lba32 + compact to lilo.conf == lilo -c -L

I was also wondering about your particular order (vcv instead of vvc/cvv). Is that of any importance ?

I prefer to add the "compact" line rather than issuing lilo -c, but that's just me.
