PlopLinux directory not on root
« on: March 07, 2011, 11:42:46 AM »
Hello,
Is there any possibility (for instance, a kernel boot parameter) to define the location of the "ploplinux" directory on the boot medium (or to change the "ploplinux" directory name) ?

Thanks for your answer,
And thanks for this neat tiny distrib :)

That could indeed be a useful option :) : I have a multiboot usb stick where I have several live OS like Windows PE, Plop Linux, etc. And I'd like to be able to avoid polluting the root directory with all the bootloaders / directories / etc. needed by each of those live OS.

I'd love to see such an option in Plop Linux.

Sincerely,
TheProphet.

here is a test version http://download.plop.at/tmp/ploplinux-4.1.1-test4.tgz
the example ploplinux directory is "test/ploplinux2"

add to the append line "dir=/test/ploplinux2"
see the first linux boot entry in syslinux/syslinux.cfg
