Is there any plans to add options to “diskboot” to set
“devc-con” (and “fs-pkg”)'s path explicitly?
(or just probing /proc/boot/devc-con first should be enough)
Current “diskboot” digs through /etc/system/package/packages, and
uses those found in the directory there, so
it wasn’t easy to test out a new “devc-con” —
you can’t point it to *.ifs (/proc/boot) easily.
I agree with you, diskboot should be rewritten The main reason is that it doesn’t process disk
driver options correctly, imo. Maybe, no reason to pass options for every particular driver, but to
pass io-blk, cam, fs etc. parameters to any devb-* drivers (who knows which ocassion occurs)
Somehow I managed it use “devc-con” in other place, but that’s a hack.
I see you are hacker I’m glad to see they are still alive here (I mean a good sense of word
Not using “diskboot” is the correct answer, but it’s really handy for
I’m just curious what diskboot’s stuff have you found useful? If you wish to use non-standard
devc-con, it’s a non-standard desktop installation
I guess you could exclude devc-con driver from diskboot bootstrap process, couldn’t you ?
/proc/boot/devc-con -n4 -LP
diskboot -e -xdevc-con
I didn’t try to exclude console driver, but I’m sure it work with -xdevb-eide.
