[Solved] how can I set changes= to booting device?

Post#1 by linuxnoob » 29 Oct 2013, 23:41

is it possible to set changes= to the booting device without using specific paths?

specific paths work but if the device order changes, or the device(usb) is moved to another computer the path may not work, I'm trying to avoid changing the porteus.cfg or pressing tab all the time and just save changes to booting device.

loading modules works fine with the sgnfile= cheatcode which doesnt use specific paths, is there something similar for saving changes?

you could use 'changes=UUID:' or 'changes=LABEL:'
please check /boot/docs/cheatcodes.txt for details.
Please add [Solved] to your thread title if the solution was found.
