Hello,

this should work without extra /boot partition.
https://download.plop.at/tmp/plopkexec-1.6-rc3-build64.tgz

Maybe you can try it.

Best regards

I fixed it according to this link: https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=202602
the append command should be:
APPEND root=/dev/mmcblk0p2 rw rootflags=subvol=@

now I can successfully boot off btrfs partition. plopKexec only need to recognize the partition for /boot

Hi,

I was trying to use btrfs for my system.
PlopKexec couldn't boot btrfs currently, so I put /boot on a separate partition, and put put plopkexec.cfg in the partition for /boot:

Content of plopkexec.cfg:
TIMEOUT 10
DEFAULT Manjaro

LABEL Manjaro
   LINUX ./vmlinuz-4.19-x86_64
   APPEND boot=/dev/mmcblk0p1 rw
   APPEND root=UUID=0d638d03-470b-4ead-9ca2-706df4c939fe rw
   INITRD ./initramfs-4.19-x86_64.img

Content of /@/etc/fstab:
# <file system>             <mount point>  <type>  <options>  <dump>  <pass>
UUID=CBAC-26FD                            /boot          vfat    defaults,noatime 0 2
UUID=0d638d03-470b-4ead-9ca2-706df4c939fe /              btrfs   subvol=@,defaults,noatime,space_cache,autodefrag,compress=zlib 0 1
UUID=0d638d03-470b-4ead-9ca2-706df4c939fe /home          btrfs   subvol=@home,defaults,noatime,space_cache,autodefrag,compress=zlib 0 2

In the btrfs partition, /@/ is the real root but not /.
I tried to boot the system, the root device is successfully mounted, but it says count not found /sbin/init and bailed.

How should I configure it to boot properly or is it possible at all?

Hi,

I have similar problem, in my case my CDROM Drive is a USB type so it does detect it as a CDROM even as a USB thumb drive/stick

Please help!

Many thanks!

God blesses!!!

Best regards,

I'm currently running Manjaro on F2FS with a sd card.
 Thank you so much!

I used /dev/mmcblk0p1 in append command, that works for ext4.
Do I need to change it into UUID?

No, you can keep "/dev/mmcblk0p1".
UUID is an alternative to the device node.
Both methods are fine. Use what you prefer :)
