It sure would be nice to know where this executable "/sbin/lilo" comes from, because *it* sure is **NOT** included in the stock slackware package (see below). The doc /usr/doc/elilo-3.16/elilo.txt does reference it however.

I would like to know how to re-install elilo from within the booted OS instead of having to run it from the klunky setup script. I think I will post another thread on this topic if I cannot find and copy the executable from the boot DVD.

elilo:
elilo: This is elilo, a boot loader originally developed by HP for IA-64
elilo: systems. This is used to load the kernel and initial ramdisk on
elilo: machines that use UEFI. Since most UEFI implementations are 64-bit,
elilo: the 64-bit EFI binary is generally the one to use (even for loading
elilo: a 32-bit kernel).

Look for a different package:

slackware64-14.2: lilo-24.2-x86_64-2

slackware64-current: lilo-24.2-x86_64-8

[SOLVED] update kernel but how configure elilo?

Chuck,

Thanks for your response but the original post I was questioning referred to the executable '/sbin/elilo'. The lilo packages you cite do indeed contain the executable '/sbin/lilo' but no '/sbin/elilo'.

As I am sure you are aware you cannot install elilo with lilo. They are separate packages.

Ahh typo's will kill you every time...

I was asking about /sbin/lilo in my original post. That was a typo. I meant to ask about /sbin/elilo. I am pretty sure this doesn't exist in any slackware package.
