Theorems on the Fredholm alternative and well-posedness of the linear boundary value problem u(t)=(u)(t)+q(t), h(u)=c, where :C([a,b];)L([a,b];) and h:C([a,b];) are linear bounded operators, qL([a,b];), and c, are established even in the case when is not a strongly bounded operator. The question on the dimension of the solution space of the homogeneous equation u(t)=(u)(t) is discussed as well.
