Is there a chance you might replace LILO with GRUB or GRUB2 in a future version, so 4M plays nice with other distros on the same drive? Or is my inexperience showing and there is something I'm missing? Thanks for your valuable time.

Hi,

What do you mean by "playing nice with other distros on the same drive"? Do you mean the problem described here:
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...xy-4175557721/ or something else?

It's hard to follow his train of thought. It does show up as unknown Linux distro. I have no problem with that. Forget LILO's "not playing well" with other boot loaders and allow me to return to the base question. Do you think you might ever "upgrade" to Grub2?

BTW, I love the new wallpaper in 15.0. Thanks for your efforts creating 4M.

No. I won't forget. Upstream (Debian developers of the os-prober package) has received a patch from me.

Grub2 is running happily on 4MLinux ALFA (i.e. my laptop :-) It should be available as a downloadable extension soon.

Please create a separate thread with your question (to avoid a mess in this forum).

Is there a down-loadable text file with all the md5sum, at any of your sourceforge sections that I can save to compare with isos?

Edit: like a "Read Me"

My ISP provider server drops from time to time so I md5sum check before making bootable medium.

2nd Edit: Does this look OK?

Code:
$ md5sum  4MLinux-15.0.iso 
d230dccf4e04af0920f2f467a95e6d10  4MLinux-15.0.iso

Thank You, Rok

3rd Edit: No extra post is needed for this.

Just adding easy info. Trying not to hijack or pollute your thread. My md5sum (name of file) text file in my 4MLinux folder I keep to keep track of things .

Thanks for your work and help. Maybe you can use the above. Maybe not. It is your show after all.

Thank You, Rok
The ISO mentioned by you is available here:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/linu...s/15.0/livecd/
You must click on the "View details" icon (dark circle with the "i" letter inside).
You will find SHA1 and MD5 checksums there.
