Exclusion of ondemand.lst items during boot time ?
« on: March 16, 2012, 08:35:35 AM »
I am going to use lst=xyz.lst boot parameter for compiling and extension creation, during which time I don't require any of the items in ondemand.lst, but they continue showing themselves up in menu, as well as some of them (quite understandably) in the wbar as well. How can this/these be excluded from boot time ?

You get one ondemand directory per tce directory.  They are not installed until you actually try to use them.

I would like to put it differently, like this:

I "really need" an ondemand.lst in tce directory, (for example with following boot entry in my old legacy grub's menu.lst) -

title tinycore (daily chores)
kernel line here .........
initrd line here ........

But with another boot entry like this -

title tinycore (compilation_time)
kernel line with an alternate lst=xyz.lst because I don't want even many of the onboot.lst items during this session (what else then is this lst= boot option for !)
initrd line here ......

Now since ondemand.lst is already in tce directory, its items are visible in menu and in wbar here too, which I don't like to see this time. Even best of the acquaintances sometime appear intruder.

So the question was is there a way to exclude "existing ondemand.lst" from being considered as present during boot/reboot .

When we use lst=xyz.lst boot parameter, are not we excluding the "existing onboot.lst" from being taken into consideration during boot time !

Thanx.

There is no such thing as ondemand.lst.

Extremely Sorry. I regret for the typo I made at the following places.

So wherever I used the wrong phrase "ondemand.lst", I should have used "ondemand directory" .

If I failed to communicate anything correctly, it may again be expressed as this:

1) Can I have a boot parameter that excludes/ignores 'existing ondemand directory' altogether during boot/reboot ?
2) If not through passing a boot parameter, then by any other means ?

This too should be read: Exclusion of ondemand directory items during boot time ?
