the patch and make the package.

I have an old T61 laptop that has some boot issues with any other boot loader. Lilo is easier to configure, but after first boot (which works) it will not boot at all. So, GRUB is my only option to use this old laptop, which works great and stable as soon as it has booted. There's something GRUB legacy and GRUB 2 does, that works. Other than that, I'd be happy to use lilo

Hypothesis of boot issues: It's bad capacitors and a SATA controller problem.
I've used this laptop since 2006 (today with an SSD).


grub, slackware, slackware64
