4 Hi. I've ported this lilo patch already, you may find it in
5 the lilo-22.3.4.ebuild. Install that and try your artwork,
6 see if it works ok?
8 I still use this version currently, as I've not gotten a
9 proper patch for the latest lilo, though there's a
10 contributed one in my buglist; but apparently there's a
11 problem with it.
13 The thing with grub is, that there's already a VGA16 patch
14 that I've put in, and it's different from the stuff that
15 SuSE does to grub. Some people are attached to it now
16 as they've cooked up artwork/bootsplashes for it. It would
17 take somebody to look into merging it; but I won't as I
18 don't use grub ;)
20 Donny.
