The newest lilo release from http://lilo.alioth.debian.org/ (release 23.1) includes interesting stuff which could be usefully included in the arch package: a well commented config file and ready to be used images for graphical lilo.

Moreover it seems to me that the current PKGBUILD grabs a wrong tarball with wrong paths instead of http://lilo.alioth.debian.org/ftp/upstream/sources/lilo-23.1.tar.gz.

Finally (but optionally) I thinl that it would be nice to provide an archlinux-branded image for graphical lilo.

For these reasons I propose the enclosed lilo.tar.gz
(application/x-gzip)    lilo.tar.gz (131.1 KiB)
This task depends upon

We will always ship plain vanilla packages without any branding or customizations. I leave this one open only for the tarball question.
