Add loopback file
I've recently would like to try your distro on my hardware, but had the following problem: it has no loopback file included, that's why I am unable to boot it from ISO right from USB flash. Loopback file is just small text file which helps Grub2 systems to understand where the kernel, initrd etc. are inside your distro. Here are some instructions how to create it: http://www.supergrubdisk.org/wiki/Loopback.cfg I would like to help to improve your distro by giving users possibility of booting your distro right from ISO that they put on USB flash. If you follow this guidelines and add loobpack.cfg file to your distro you will definetly make it better for everyone.
Greetings dear developers. This is not actually a bug but feature that needs to be implemented. Most of the top tier distros already done that (Ubuntu, Mint, Fedora). It's not taking more than few KB of additional space for just one text file that allows ISO to become bootable via LoopBack.cfg file. Some additional details are also available on the following github repo: https://github.com/infinity0/uberimg - I can help you if there are any questions. Hope you add support in the nearest future. Thanks, good luck. Den.
AlmAck: interesting, but we don't have grub at boot on the ISO, but gfxboot and systemd-boot. If I have understood correctly this loopback file works only when you use grub.
If we want to archive that some other things are involved:
- we have to move from gfxboot to grub in the live ISO (an advantage is that also on EFI system the boot is more smoth without the ugly systemd-boot non interface)
- we have to move the "select language", and "select the video driver" in a pre configuration window (start x, select driver, restart x and login kde)
Yep that might be an important move forward towards following of some popular standards which as I see very good. I'm not sure if the distro is too hard tightened to systemd-boot or not.
