Boot Managers / Re: plopKexec ignoring grub2 entries
« Last post by Elmar on August 02, 2019, 12:03:42 PM »
Hello,

I updated and tested PlopKexec with F2FS support. Please try it.
https://download.plop.at/tmp/plopkexec-1.6-rc2-build64.tgz


Here is a plopkexec.cfg. Maybe someone needs it as sample. You have to use the file names and UUID from your system. See the file "/proc/cmdline" on your system for that and also the content of the "/boot" directory.

Code: [Select]
label manjaro
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-4.19-x86_64
initrd /boot/initramfs-4.19-x86_64.img
append root=UUID=cf95e2f9-4e81-406a-83a9-633263a51941 rw quiet

Best regards
Elmar

I will try it by myself to fix the problem, but earliest in a few days.

It will be added to the official version when you tried it.

https://download.plop.at/tmp/plopkexec-1.6-rc1-build64.tgz

I added some other file systems too.

I tested on a sd card with fresh Manjaro installation, on F2FS.
It says in the log, same as v1.5:
Can not mount /dev/mmcblk0
...
Can not mount /dev/mmcblk0p1

Do you know how to do this? Or is it easier when I quickly give you a precompiled version?

 :-[ Sorry, I don't know how to do it...
It would be great if you can give me a upgraded image. Perhaps you can merge this change into the official version?

Thank you so much!

is it possible to make plopKexec booting systems in NILFS2/F2FS? How much work may be required to achieve this?

Adding support for NILFS2 and F2FS is easy. You have to add them in the kernel config and recompile plopkexec. Do you know how to do this? Or is it easier when I quickly give you a precompiled version?

Hello,

the Grub 2 config file is not well supported. The easiest is to create a simple plopkexec config file with the kernel and initrd settings and store it on the sd card.

Best regards

I'm really happy now I can run Manjaro on a SD card, it's surprisingly smooth and responsive.
One further question, I noticed in the document that plopKexec only works for FAT/EXT filesystems, is it possible to make plopKexec booting systems in NILFS2/F2FS? How much work may be required to achieve this?
