Switching from LILO to Grub
« on: July 24, 2012, 02:38:49 pm »

I'm using LILO in VL7 Light, i want to switch to Grub.
After running:
Code: [Select]
$ slapt-get --installed
I get this:
Code: [Select]
grub2-1.99~rc1-i586-2vl70 [inst=yes]: grub2 ()
so grub 2-1.99 IS installed, so, do i remove LILO, and run

Code: [Select]
# update-grub
is this correct?

BTW, i never had the option to choose btwn the two (LILO vs Grub) at installation time, i think this option to choose is very important.
