Author Topic: Switching from LILO to Grub  (Read 725 times)

« on: July 24, 2012, 01:38:49 pm »

I'm using LILO in VL7 Light, i want to switch to Grub.
After running:
$ slapt-get --installed

I get this:
grub2-1.99~rc1-i586-2vl70 [inst=yes]: grub2 ()

so grub 2-1.99 IS installed, so, do i remove LILO, and run

# 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.
