* Make the default language of the Live ISO configurable Eric Hameleers2018-09-042-1/+6
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Added a new parameter to '' script: -l <localization> For example, create a liveslak ISO with dutch as the default language instead of US english: # ./ -l nl Using this parameter you can onfigure a different default language for the resulting ISO image. The default localization if you do not supply this parameter remains "us" as before. The boot menu offers a selection of other languages/localizations to pick from (currently you can select any of 'be br da gb de de_ch es fr fr_ch it ja nl pt ru se us') but now you can create your own brand of liveslak ISO with your own language as the default.
* 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 '#'.

| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | - 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.
