Squashfs as rootfs

Post by MoonWolf » 2019/01/13 21:33:46

Hello.

I'm trying to add option to grub menu (amongst other options) to boot
from squashfs image. But 'root=live:/path/tofile' doesn't work. I didn't
find anything useful on the internet. Anybody can point me in right
direction?

Maybe better choice is to replace grub with isolinux?
I have working solution with iso with squashfs booting through PXE, but
i don't know how to do this in grub.

TIA

Hmm... Looks like it doesn't work. But it's for install purposes - isn't syslinux there instead of grub?

OK, i did it the other way - i've put rootfs into initramfs. It works...
