Alix 2D3, part 2

Pressing the ‘s’ key interrupts the boot. I set the CF card to LBA mode, although I’m not actually sure that made any difference.

(Q) Quit

Grub didn’t have the right configuration, so I swapped the CF card back over to my Fedora machine and used guestfish to make some quick edits to the grub configuration. (Note: grub2 has a confusingly different configuration from grub1). Also to /etc/inittab so I can get a login prompt on the serial console after boot.

# guestfish -i /dev/sdb

Welcome to guestfish, the libguestfs filesystem interactive shell for

After that, it boots first time! There’s not a lot running …
