GUI utility to configure LILO boot loader.

Initially written in BashGtkdialog  to accompany and complete the application 'Live Installer'  in Zenlive, I first named it LiloFix.

This point and click application considerably simplified LILO configuration, including multi-boot and/or multi-kernel set-up. It went on to be fully operational from a regular Operating System, and not only from a Live CD.

I then re-wrote it from scratch in Python and GTK+ for Salix Live, renamed it for the occasion LiloSetup. Featuring semi-automated configuration, detailed contextual help triggered by the position of the mouse constantly guided the novice user while the advanced user had total liberty to manually complete the generated configuration if he so wished.

LiloSetup has been translated in Arabic, Czech, Danish, Dutch, English, French, German, Greek, Hungarian, Italian, Japanese, Polish, Portuguese (Brazil partly and Portugal fully), Russian,Spanish (Argentina and Castilian), Swedish and Ukrainian, etc.

Distributions that use or have used LiloFix/Lilosetup:

Unfortunately, at the moment I do not have time to properly maintain LiloSetup which is now being developped by Salix OS. A part of its code will live in the new project started by Cyrille Ponvieux : BootSetup, a GUI utility to configure Lilo and GRUB.
