How to change the location of syslinux.cfg?

Post#1 by dafan » 24 Apr 2014, 15:03

Hello, I am trying to move the /boot directory under the /portues directory in a ISO file or USB stick. I have changed all the paths in makeiso.sh, syslinux.cfg and porteus.cfg. Now if I put syslinux.cfg under /boot/syslinux and all other files under /porteus/boot/syslinux, Porteus can boot. But if I also move syslinux.cfg to /porteus/boot/syslinux, Porteus will complain that it can not find the configuration file and show a prompt.

Code: Select all

ERROR: No configuration file found
No DEFAULT or UI configuration directive found!
boot:
Does anyone know how to let Porteus find syslinux.cfg in /porteus/boot/syslinux?

Thanks for the advices.

what about this:
- move /porteus to /boot
- add 'from=/boot' cheatcode

:)
