Boot Info Script 0.61

Boot Info Script 0.61 is released:

  • Add README file.
  • Add --update switch to make it easier to download the last development
  • Also detect grub2 files when they are located in /grub2 or /boot/grub2.
  • Make sure that BIS is run with bash as shell interpreter.
  • Added --stdout switch: write results to standard output instead of a file.
  • "" file renamed to "bootinfoscript".
  • List EFI boot files.
  • Fix displaying of config file string for some grub2 (v1.99) binaries.
  • New GUIDs added: - new GUID for Linux basic data partition
    - Chrome OS partitions
  • Check for root rights before checking the list of all needed programs, so
    it works also correctly on systems where not all programs are in the $PATH
    variable of a normal user.
  • Detect if xz or lzma is available on the system (replaces unlzma command).
  • Add filesystem info for the detected Windows boot sector code.
  • Fix a crash in BIS which occured when processing a modified grub4dos boot
    loader file which inserts a SLIC table in the ACPI table.
