Adding grub2 support

Reported by: Damian Montaldo ( Owned by: somebody

Component: sali Version: 1.5.0
Keywords: SALI, grub2 Cc:


Hi, I want to add grub2 support from scratch and after reading the improvements from Chris Pepper I decide to start writing some patches to give some feedback.

I edit the si_mkclientnetboot script and the pxelinux syslinux config to support the grub2 and image name variables.
I'm attaching the patches, take a look a it and let me know if it helps.

SALI is only the fork of the kernel and initrd (and boel binaries), we don't maintain the systemimager/systemconfigurator perl code.

Currently we are using a post-install script to use grub2, I just added our post-install script into the example directory in the repository (trunk/example/02all.bootloader)

But we are planning to add some functions in the core of SALI which allows you to use grub2 installation from you masterscript, see ticket #33.
