In LILO config file (/etc/lilo.conf) what's the difference between specifying vga option in Global section and when specifying it in per-image section.


The vga option is a bit strange: it is processed by the kernel, not by Lilo. However, unlike most such options, for historical reasons, it is not passed on the kernel command line, but using a binary protocol. Nonetheless, specifying the option in the Global section is equivalent to specifying it in every image section.
