plopkexec timeout
« on: June 28, 2016, 15:06:53 PM »
Dear Elmar,

played around with plopkexec 1.4-test1. Works fine on a Wyse Thinclient SX0 S50.
But I was unable to use its timeout function, tried to boot the first/default entry after the timeout period.
Plopkexec always waits for keyboard input [return]...

Here is my /boot/plopkexec.cfg:

Quote

default tinycore_linux
timeout 10

label tinycore_linux
lernel /boot/vmlinuz
initrd /boot/core.gz
append level=3 cde showapps desktop=fluxbox kmap=qwertz/de-latin1


What am I doing wrong?  Any ideas?

Hello,

what do you see in the log about timeout?


Best regards
Elmar

Note: I know that there is a typo in the timeout log.

Please send me the plopkexec.cfg in a compressed file.

PlopKexec has been fixed and version 1.4-test2 is now available.
