Manual Entries stopped working after update from 0.6.8 to 0.6.10

    Running on Arch Linux x64.
    Manual entries work fine on refind 0.6.8 but running 0.6.10 system freezes when manual entries selected. If I add ",internal" to the end of the scanfor line like this:

    scanfor manual,external,optical,internal

    Then manual entries work fine in 0.6.10 but I don't want to do an internal scan.

  • I've tried to reproduce this problem, but without success. I used your configuration file, although I did have to point it to my kernel and use options for my test system. Do all of your manual entries hang, or just some of them? What about the submenu entries? Also, are you using my rEFInd binary (if so, from which package?) or one from Arch? (If the latter, it's conceivable that there's a problem with that specific binary build.) What sort of computer do you have (make and model)?
