Slackware64-14.1 ChangeLog (2013-09-25)

Wed Sep 25 08:45:38 UTC 2013

UEFI boot of the ISO image should be working now! See the new instructions
for mastering the ISO in isolinux/README.TXT. Thanks to Patrick Verner,
Steven Shiau, and jtsn for confirming my findings about how to get GRUB to
search for the disc after a UEFI El-Torito boot. Also, a new source option
has been added to the installer (install the packages from a USB stick). The
packages are expected to be found in /slackware64-$VERSION/slackware64/, or
/slackware64/. The script has been slightly modified since
it no longer needs to make changes to the installer. There's still no
automatic bootloader installation for UEFI, but we'll look into setting up
elilo there. Adding a UEFI boot menu entry will probably be left as an
exercise for the end user. Test it, but I think it's finally working. :-)
