Here's a list of the features we are using from grub: For install medium: * Hybrid DVD ISO/USB image in same file * BIOS / UEFI loaders on same image * Graphics support For installed system: * Script-able ZFS BE menus * Options for setting default timeouts / default BEs to load, etc * Script-able menu to boot other OS's, such as Windows / Linux * Loads before kernel * Graphics support (I.E. countdown indicator, wallpapers, arrow-key support, etc) If the native loader is able to handle the ZFS BE stuff, then I don't see a reason why I can't make it an option in the installer, even without graphics and the other niceties that grub brings. Is this working in the stable/10 branch now? -- Kris Moore PC-BSD Software iXsystems _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-current To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-current-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
