LILO release 22.7.2 is based upon Werner Almesberger's LILO version 21.


Version 22.7.2 is a minor update to version 22.7.1

o Keywords "noraid", "nokbdefault", "nokbdisable" are added.
o Compensate for common BIOS bug (sectors==0) on USB disk drives.
o Increase kernel command line to 512 bytes.


Version 22.7.1 is a minor update to version 22.7

o Expand device major/minor numbers to more than 8 bits.
o Apply security updates to 'mkrescue' & 'QuickInst'.
o Allow any keystrike (not just Shift) to display 'boot:' menu, or to escape
from
a stored command line.


Version 22.7 is a minor update to version 22.6.1

o Add the DOS/Windows utility 'lilo.com' which implements the -q -R -V (-C -m)
switches. This utility may be used to set the boot command line if the sector
map file is on a DOS/Windows partition.
o Add bulletproofing for "unattended" so that a spurious character can
be ignored.
o Select boot descriptors based upon partially typed names in all situations
except "unattended".




Versions 22.6.*, 22.5.*, 22.4, 22.3, 22.2, 22.1, 22.0 are major updates to
version 21.


*** THE VERSION 22 RAID1 IMPLEMENTATION IS NOT COMPATIBLE WITH VERSION 21.

Those using version 21 should read 'README.raid1' before installing these
new codes. There is a compatibility mode (lilo -x mbr-only) for existing
RAID1 installations which are not going to be converted to the Version 22
implementation.
