Description Jaroslav Reznik 2014-03-20 14:15:37 UTC
This is a tracking bug for Change: u-boot syslinux by default
For more details, see: http://fedoraproject.org//wiki/Changes/u-boot_syslinux

Add syslinux support to u-boot enabling both pxelinux and extlinux support. simplifying booting arm machines, making anaconda installs easy and overall providing for a better user experience.
Default u-boot to using syslinux config files for booting. pxelinux for network and extlinux for local booting. u-boot is the bootloader used on ARM systems in Fedora so the scope of this change is limited to ARM hardware only.

This message is a reminder that Fedora 21 Accepted Changes Freeze Deadline is on 2014-07-08 [1].

At this point, all accepted Changes should be substantially complete, and testable. Additionally, if a change is to be enabled by default, it must be so enabled at Change Freeze.

This bug should be set to the MODIFIED state to indicate that it achieved completeness. Status will be provided to FESCo right after the deadline. If, for any reasons, your Change is not in required state, let me know and we will try to find solution. For Changes you decide to cancel/move to the next release, please use the NEW status and set needinfo on me and it will be acted upon. 

In case of any questions, don't hesitate to ask Wrangler (jreznik). Thank you.

the u-boot side is done, patches for grubby are underway. appliance-tools sets things up correctly, and I have a plan for implementing things getting setup correctly on installs
