Boot Managers / Plop Menu Freezes at Startup
« Last post by joy_deep on December 17, 2019, 10:15:47 AM »
Hello,

I have installed Plop Boot Manager in my grub menu on my Compaq Pressario 2100 laptop. Now the Plop menu comes as soon as I start the machine. But it freezes if I press down arrow or any key. So how do I solve this problem?
Otherwise, how do I remove the plop menu and go back to my earlier Ubuntu system?
Please help.

Thanks.

ATM i am short in time, but i think it's this way:
For USB: Add the firmware files to lib.sqfs
For PXE: Add the firmware files to initramfs.gz

When it does not work when you boot from USB, then it boots faster from USB than PXE. In this case, put the firmware into initramfs.gz and lib.sqfs.

Ok, if i boot from PXE i have to add it to initramfs.gz otherwise (boot from USB) i have to add it in lib.sqfs?
Because it seems not to work in initramfs.gz if i boot from USB.
I add it to lib.sqfs and test it.

When your network card does not work without the firmware file, then you have to add it to initramfs.gz when you boot from PXE. Adding to lib.sqfs is not needed, because the firmware file has been already loaded when lib.sqfs became available.

This way it can boot from PXE and has network access when the server is running, right?

Correct, the /lib/firmware is not available after lib.sqfs has been mounted. /lib/firmware is then the firmware directory from lib.sqfs. When there is no /lib/firmware directory, then you are using the wrong lib.sqfs.

I took the file (initramfs.gz) from plop 19.4, extract it, add /lib/firmware and repack it. After that, my "self made" initramfs.gz has about 23MB.
When i boot with this file, the folder /lib/firmware/ is not there. I think the folder /lib is overwritten by lib.sqfs.
Are i am wrong?

Edit: I have done this with older plop versions and it has worked.
