    [SOLVED] Slackware 13 Bootloader


    For anyone that has installed Slackware 13... does Slackware now offer a choice between LILO and GRUB during the installation, or does it still install LILO by default the way it always has?

    Thanks to anyone that might know.

    I tried Slack 13 64 bit briefly and it was still LILO from what I could see.

    Hey, thanks for the reply, reed9!

    With Patrick going to the 2.6 kernel by default and now a 64-bit version of Slack being available, I thought he might have also finally given users the option to install GRUB rather than LILO during the installation, but I guess not. I don't know how many distros still use LILO, but the number must be very small these days.

    Yes, there is no choice between lilo and grub during installation, lilo is default. However grub slackbuild is available in extra/source on the dvd. but there are patches too which i don't know how to apply. so left it like that (no read me in that directory too..).
