Description Marty Shannon 1999-04-29 18:48:29 UTC
Not a big deal, but it would be nice if, when changing
(adding) additional parameters to lilo.conf, linuxconf would
both preserve indentation, and add quotes around the
additional parameters (i.e., "mem=80m" for my laptop).

Comment 1 Joe Acosta 1999-07-05 22:34:59 UTC
this happened on my machine too, it is a bug in linuxconf. It happens
with all version of linux conf. in my case it was the append line:

the append line should look like append = "xtpic=3" but was showing up
as append = xtpic=3 this cause errors when running lilo it would fail,
thank goodness I always have a boot disk.
the xtpic=3 is a SMP kernel patch that I have just voluntered to be an
alpha tester for. It may provide a workaround for a suspected APIC

Comment 2 Joe Acosta 1999-07-05 22:35:59 UTC
by versio I ment linuxconf, gnomeconf, linuxweb based, etc tyhat are
included in RH 6.0

Comment 3 Michael K. Johnson 1999-08-28 19:43:59 UTC
Added Jacques to the Cc line so that he can fix this.

Comment 4 Dale Lovelace 1999-12-03 19:54:59 UTC
This is fixed in linuxconf-1.16r10 which will be released as an errata when
testing is completed. I suggest upgrading when it is available.

Comment 5 Michael K. Johnson 1999-12-15 20:55:59 UTC
1.16r10-2 released.
