Lilo discontinued

Post by DavidMcCann » 13. Feb 2016, 17:16

I notice that people are still referring to Lilo, but it's been discontinued. Has anyone heard of some-one taking over the project?

I don't think it matters. All new computers are coming with UEFI now which lilo doesn't work on.

I thought 14.2 was using eLilo? Although I recall PV saying (on LQ) there was nothing wrong with lilo even unmaintained.

Edit: OK, after reading Gapan's link it appears PV has it. :)
