View Full Version : TOUGH LINUX KERNEL LOADER (init script) using Ubuntu Kernel & kexec

March 5th, 2011, 12:00 PM
I wonder if this (Programming Talk) is the right place to post the following. If not, please let me know.


I want to announce the tough linux kernel loader named: KIYOSHI'S help.

It can boot linux installed fully in btrfs filesystems.
It can boot linux installed fully in LVM2.
It can boot linux installed in USB-3.0 HDD (at least in my case).
It can boot linux even if installed grub2 cannot boot linux.
If only the Ubuntu (booting from LiveCD or installed one) can mount the partition where linux you want to boot is installed.

You can download kiyoshi's help bootable CD iso image file.

The detail is written at the following URL.

CLI is not displayed at all usually, which may be due to plymouth, ncurse or something.
GUI is usually displayed.
I will try to understand the reason and modify kiyoshi's help.

With "kiyoshi's help", I can log in to CLI on SOTEC PC STATION G4170R and PASOKON KOUBOU MN502.
I cannot log in to CLI on TOSHIBA DYNABOOK EX1/524 CMEK and IBM THINKPAD X22.

I moved to Debian at May in 2011.
Now I do not boot Ubuntu so often. I only boot Ubuntu once a week (or less).
So, I cannot help generating "kiyoshi's help" on Ubuntu.
Now I can help generating "kiyoshi's help" on Debian Squeeze.
