I've used lilo for years, and just now started using grub. But I've never used UUID in my fstab until Sabayon-3.4e, and now I'm using grub. So I've never actually tried this myself.
Actually, I don't think lilo will care what your fstab looks like. The kernel handles that latter in the boot process.
But it would be good to be ready. Make sure and identify which actual device each UUID points to:
- Code: Select all
ls -Fla /dev/disk/by-uuid/
If you want, you could replace each UUID in your fstab by the corresponding /dev/sdx# or /dev/hdx#. Personally, I would leave the fstab as is, and see if it works, making sure I have the information to edit fstab if that is really necessary (you can do this by booting with your Sabayon-Linux DVD if booting fails)
However, your lilo.conf file will need the root partition (the partation mounted at /) identified by sdx#/hdx#.
