lilo−uuid−diskid − convert boot / root options to diskid and
uuid in lilo.conf.

lilo‐uuid‐diskid [−h] [−v] [lilo.conf]

This script looks for the boot block device or boot
partition and create the right diskid or uuid as boot
option. Then it looks for all root partitions and create the
right uuids as root options.

     These conversions are necessary for use with newer
kernel (>= 2.6.26) if it use the libata module for parallel
and serial ATA interfaces of block devices (i. e. hard disks
with IDE or SATA interface, usbsticks).

−h  Print a brief help.

−v  Print verbose messages.

Lines in the configuration file /etc/lilo.conf:

       #boot = /dev/sda
  boot = /dev/disk/by−id/ata−SAMSUNG_SV1604N_S01FJ10X999999

  #root = /dev/sda1
  root = "UUID=18843936−00f9−4df0−a373−000d05a5dd44"
