[Solved] How to load extension when booting with Grub2
« on: January 21, 2021, 06:24:31 AM »
I have a grub.cfg as
Code: [Select]
$ cat /mnt/sdc2/EFI/BOOT/grub/grub.cfg
loadfont unicode
insmod all_video
set gfxmode=1366x768x32
set gfxpayload=keep
set gfxterm_font=unicode
terminal_output gfxterm

search --no-floppy --fs-uuid --set=root d4432cde-d21a-4d40-b44b-f097ce72cdba

menuentry "core" {
linux /boot/vmlinuz quiet text tce=UUID="d4432cde-d21a-4d40-b44b-f097ce72cdba" waitusb=10:UUID="d4432cde-d21a-4d40-b44b-f097ce72cdba"
initrd /boot/rootfs.gz /boot/modules.gz
}

menuentry "core64" {
linux /boot/vmlinuz64 quiet text tce=UUID="d4432cde-d21a-4d40-b44b-f097ce72cdba" waitusb=10:UUID="d4432cde-d21a-4d40-b44b-f097ce72cdba"
initrd /boot/rootfs.gz /boot/modules64.gz
}

menuentry "corepure64" {
linux /boot/vmlinuz64 quiet text tce=UUID="d4432cde-d21a-4d40-b44b-f097ce72cdba"/tce64 waitusb=10:UUID="d4432cde-d21a-4d40-b44b-f097ce72cdba"
initrd /boot/rootfs64.gz /boot/modules64.gz
}

menuentry "corepure64 base" {
linux /boot/vmlinuz64 quiet text tce=UUID="d4432cde-d21a-4d40-b44b-f097ce72cdba"/tce64 waitusb=10:UUID="d4432cde-d21a-4d40-b44b-f097ce72cdba" base norestore
initrd /boot/rootfs64.gz /boot/modules64.gz
}

I want to load extensions (onboot and ondemand) from sdb1.
Code: [Select]
$ ls /mnt/sdb1/tce64
ondemand      optional       onboot.lst       xbase.lst
So how to modify the grub.cfg?

Hi amg
... So how to modify the grub.cfg?
You don't. You use the  Apps  utility for that. Click on the icon that looks like a screw head with a blue down arrow on it.
When the utility comes up:
Click  Apps->OnBoot Maintenance  to add/remove items in OnBoot.
Click  Apps->OnDemand Maintenance  to add/remove items in OnDemand.

Hi rich & amg 

Hi amg
... So how to modify the grub.cfg?
You don't. ...

unless alternatively ( as mentioned in http://tinycorelinux.net/faq.html#bootcodes )

you could create a "xyz.lst" file and use the "lst=xyz.lst" option  mentioned in the above link

Code: (" from  tinycorelinux.net/faq.html#bootcodes ") [Select]
tinycore lst=yyy.lst                Load alternate static yyy.lst on boot
this would require adding the string : "lst=xyz.lst"
to the linux kernel options passed from *whatever* bootloader config file !
