Lilo reference and kernel parameters on Wiki

Knowing, and much appreciative, of the fact that most Archlinux supporters are sticklers for exactitude in regard to technical writing, I wanted to mention one apparent error I noticed. It states here, https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/GU … tion_Table , that "GRUB Legacy and LILO do not support GPT." However, if I understand correctly, according to the changelog for Lilo shown here, https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/lilo/+changelog , indeed the most recent version (version 24) does have support for it: "Better support for GPT hard disks."

Incidentally, while on the subject, I wanted to ask a relevant question. If I enable the kernel config option to support GPT partitions while building a kernel, and I use legacy Grub to boot into its OS, would this setting cause booting to fail? Thanks.

Re: Lilo reference and kernel parameters on Wiki

Feel free to correct/update/amend the wiki as you see fit - that's the way wikis work.

I think there would be very few people here still using GRUB Legacy, so it might be best to test it with GPT yourself.
