LILO 22.5.7-1 on Woody?

...from testing, this is not woody anymore?


My Asus A7V133 also has an onboard Promise-Controller running on
RAID0, which contain a WinXP system.

When running lilo finds duplicate VolumeIDs, it is on /dev/ataraid/d0
and /dev/hde which also addresses the first disk from the raid set.
So it sees the same drive but wants different IDs for them.

I can't let lilo set a new VolumeID because Windows will refuse to
boot (and ID of both devices will be changed - so it probably won't
work as well).


I assume you backported this version (22.5.7.2). If you did, please
backport (22.5.8) which have the feature of skip some disks for the
volume ID check, simply by marking them as inaccessible as follows:
disk=/dev/hde inaccessible

This may skip the volume ID check when running LILO. Again, this is
a new feature of LILO which can only be found on 22.5.8.

22.5.8 was in unstable, and everything went fine with it.
Thanks a lot.
