gfxboot

I hope I posted this in the correct section, if not, please move ;)

It has been years since I burned a iso (my build, which is not very different to stock) to dvd.

I built from pyfll today and burnt it to dvd and upon boot it gives me an error.

Code: [Select]
Loading bootlogo ...
Error Setting up gfxboot


Then gives me an option of booting
Code: [Select]
Siduction_amd64
Boot_from_Hard_Disk


I had this problem before when building sidux, I can't for the life of me remember what I did to make the dvd boot.

This build works perfect when booting fromiso.

Any thoughts ?

I can post my "KDE desktop environment" if needed

thanks

You are not alone :) Mostly i need between 3-6 build if i change the pyfll settings for a releae. The question is: which sources for pyfll do you use? Do you have the needed packages in it?  Most errors are made in this section:

Code: [Select]

 166 FLL_WALLPAPER        = "/usr/share/wallpapers/siduction-desperado-reloaded"
 167 FLL_GFXBOOT_THEME    = "12.1.1-desperado-reloaded"

 174 FLL_DISTRO_VERSION           = 12.1.1


These entries should match - if not, pyfll has no chance to get the needed datas for gfxboot in the buildchroot.

Thanks agaida, that was the problem

Code: [Select]

FLL_WALLPAPER        = "/usr/share/wallpapers/siduction-desperado"
FLL_GFXBOOT_THEME     ="12.1-desperado"
FLL_DISTRO_VERSION           = 12.1


My fault really as I use the same code for awhile, usually use as fromiso using toram so I don't notice the gfxboot error and me being too lazy to fix/upgrade it

danke
