grub kernel flavours feature proposal
martin f krafft
Tue, 1 Jul 2008 18:55:37 +0200
Dear grub developers,
Debian's grub1 had a nice feature where its update-grub script would
create additional stanzas with different arguments for each kernel
it found. You configured it like this:
## altoption boot targets option
## multiple altoptions lines are allowed
## e.g. altoptions=(extra menu suffix) extra boot options
## altoptions=(single-user) single
# altoptions=(single-user) single
# altoptions=(rootdelay) rootdelay=10
and this would cause three stanzas for each kernel version to be
created, each with a different kernel line.
With grub2, I note how /etc/grub.d/10_linux hardcodes that there
should be a plain and a single-user stanza for each kernel. Someone
has recently requested for this to be optional.
Instead, I propose to handle single-user mode via functionality
similar to what Debian had for grub1.
I'd be willing to have a go at this, but I can't quite decide/figure
out where to configure these altoptions/flavours. Any ideas?
