My EFI grub for boot porteus

Here is a place for your projects which are not officially supported by the Porteus Team. For example: your own kernel patched with extra features; desktops not included in the standard ISO like Gnome; base modules that are different than the standard ISO, etc...

My EFI grub for boot porteus

Post#1 by luuvki » 29 Mar 2021, 17:49

I use Porteus as my linux distro, its fast to boot and this is reason why i use it, i have feeling to share my EFI configuration, i tweak configs from KDE neon (its kubuntu fork) and i add porteus menu items, i tested it on 64bit and i go test 32 on baytrail tablets (i post here the result), this use a grub instead a syslinux,..

here is link to test https://ulozto.net/file/5ZUAUAFyt9lj/porteus-efi-tar-gz

update: it works on tablet with bootia32.efi but need to have .disks folder, i get files from KDE neon CD

Thank you luuvki. Your grub code looks like grub2 code, is it?

Yes, i get files from KDE neon ISO, what i change is only grub.cfg, i find that 32bit bootia32.efi need .disks folder, i read more from wikis, very good about this problematic about grug is here on the wiki of the tails distro https://gitlab.tails.boum.org/tails/blu ... FI/32-bit/

i think best way for me is only get ISO of existing distro and change config only.

Hello!

In case this may fit the discussion i've got lucky hacking Linuxium for Atom laptops, the problem being the machine's UEFi boot procedure excluded many .ISOs including Porteus. So i merged both and here i come, with a few years delay - must have been busy... :hi:

Thanks for all the thought food in any case!!

:thumbsup:
