The following patch to EFI.pm addresses these issues.
- Adding additional locations for finding elilo stuff
[already applied to CVS by Dan]
- Allowing one to use the 'EXTRAS' line for ELILO.
This is good for
Altix since SGI needs the "relocatable" flag added
- Changing the efi friendly support to reverse how it
My version of ELILO (and I think all) want slashes
in paths for
kernels and initrd's to be unix-style back slashes,
not forward slashes.
So EFI.pm makes it so kernel images with slashes
never work instead of
always work. I didn't spot this before since RedHat
doesn't put slashes
in kernel names. SuSE does because it stores them
in the root of EFI and
not the directory with elilo.efi.
