When you boot into FreeBSD and you can select kernels, there's only 2 options: default and kernel.old Is there a way to have better output and support multiple kernels without having to login to the system and running uname -v or something like that? Would it be possible to add options for more kernels from that boot menu?
There sure is! How's your forth? Honestly, it's an extremely simple, yet powerful language. All the old Macintoshes used it (think BIOS). You could then simply add as many kernel entries as you felt you needed. OTOH You could simply break to the boot loader, and pick any kernel you wanted. :-) All of this also assumes you're manually making copies of the kernel(s) your interested in saving. As a default install kernel only backs up the previous one -- but you already knew that. :-) HTH --Chris _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list https://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-current To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-current-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
