INTRODUCTION

brzboot is derived from gummiboot. It executes EFI images.
The default entry is selected by a configured pattern (glob)
or an on-screen menu.

brzboot operates on the EFI System Partition (ESP) only. Configuration file
fragments, kernels, initrds, other EFI images need to reside on the ESP.
Linux kernels must be built with CONFIG_EFI_STUB to be able to be directly
executed as an EFI image.

brzboot reads simple and entirely generic configurion files; one file per
boot entry, in legacy mode; otherwise, a single configurion file.

Pressing Space (or most other) keys during bootup will show an on-screen
menu with all configured entries to select from. Pressing enter on the
selected entry loads and starts the EFI image.

If no timeout is configured and no key pressed during bootup, the default
entry is booted right away.

FEATURES

CONFIGURATION

An /EFI/brzboot/loader.conf for boot loader defaults.
An /EFI/brzboot/entries.conf for bootlist entries.
See manual brzboot.8 for more information.
