* Fix PXE boot. Fix pxeserver. Add support for PXE-booting UEFI-based PC's Eric Hameleers2019-02-154-10/+5
| | | | Note that UEFI PXE-boot is not yet working, I do not know why.
* Add support for on-disk OS configuration file Eric Hameleers2018-06-151-0/+5
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | The configuration file must be in the liveslak main directory ('/liveslak' by default) and be called 'DISTRO_os.cfg' where DISTRO is the lower-case name of the distro ('slackware' by default). The following variables can be defined in the configuration file, one per line, in the format VAR=value: BLACKLIST, INIT, KEYMAP, LIVE_HOSTNAME, LOAD, LOCALE, LUKSVOL, NOLOAD, RUNLEVEL, TWEAKS, TZ, XKB. Since the configuration file is sourced by the live init script, it is OK to have comments in it that are prefixed with '#'.
* Make the '' script compatible with grub-2.02 Eric Hameleers2017-12-271-8/+18
| | | | | | | | In particular, it seems that including the 'ahci' grub module caused failure on boot, because the actual Live USB stick would not be detected and the local harddisk would be detected as (ahci0). The script has also been enhanced so that the 'grub-mkimage' commandline will not get fed any non-existing module, which would otherwise abort the command.
* Update the syslinux and grub help files with the new 'tweaks' option. Eric Hameleers2016-05-141-2/+4
* README.txt: update the documentation for the new PXE server functionality. Eric Hameleers2016-05-051-0/+4
* Update syslinux & grub help files with latest boot parameter info. Eric Hameleers2016-04-241-0/+17
* Add support for 32-bit UEFI boot (disabled by default). Eric Hameleers2016-03-181-5/+14
| | | | | | | | | | | This requires functionality in grub which is currently not enabled in Slackware's grub package. If you want a 32-bit Live ISO that boots on UEFI computers, you need to recompile Slackware's grub with the patch for grub.SlackBuild which you can find in the ./patches subdirectory. Then you need to set the variable "EFI32" to "YES" in the '' script and (re-)generate your 32-bit ISO. The resulting 32-bit Live ISO will be UEFI-bootable.
* Documentation updates. Eric Hameleers2016-03-111-0/+6
* New boot parameter "localhd" to initialize RAID/LVM on local harddisks. Eric Hameleers2016-02-171-0/+2
* Tweaks and spelling fixes for the syslinux and grub2 help files. Eric Hameleers2016-02-151-5/+10
* Update the syslinux and grub help texts. Eric Hameleers2016-02-141-0/+7
* BIOS (syslinux) and UEFI (grub2) boot: enhance the experience. Eric Hameleers2016-01-103-394/+82
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | - generate the grub fonts (.pf2) ourselves instead of using the Slackware-provided grub font file. - expand the help text about the boot parameters. - show the liveslak version number in the boot menu. - remove the 'boot any OS' menu item in Grub because it never worked for me. - add a bit of Grub help text at the bottom of the screen. NOTES: - I do not like the way how I had to implement the Grub2 help menu, it is ugly. Perhaps the text artefacts and understrikes are caused by the fact that the grub console has to paint on top of the graphical boot menu? - In any case, the grub console (the black rectangle in the middle) has its coordinates hard-coded in the grub2 source so it is not configurable. - the grub fonts look better than in Beta3 but I am still not happy with them. Research on Grub boot menu enhancements done by Didier Spaier.
* Generate our own Grub font files, to fix the bad font rendering at UEFI boot. Eric Hameleers2016-01-012-3/+3
| | | | | Slackware's shipped Grub font is 19 point in size which does not scale well. Research and proposed patch by Didier Spaier.
* Add a themed GRUB2 menu for UEFI boot, these are the actual files used. Eric Hameleers2015-12-247-135/+46
* Add working UEFI support to the Live ISO. Eric Hameleers2015-12-015-0/+581
