NAME

       delo.conf - configuration file for delo

DESCRIPTION

       This  file,  by  default  /etc/delo.conf,  is  read  by the boot loader
       installer ’/sbin/delo’ and is used by the loader  itself  to  read  its
       configuration.

       It might look as follows:

              # /etc/delo.conf
              #
              # boot device
              boot=/dev/sda

              # bootable kernel images:
              label=linux
                   image=/boot/vmlinux
                   append="root=/dev/sda5 console=ttyS2"

              label=linux-2.4
                   image=/boot/vmlinux-2.4
                   append="root=/dev/hda2 console=ttyS0 initrd=/initrd.img"

OPTIONS

       boot=<disk>
              This  defines  the boot device where the primary boot block will
              be written to.

       label=<label>
              This tells delo the label of the menu entry.   This  is  a  top-
              level  option,  the  following  two must come after a label, and
              they will be associated with it.  The label can be passed  as  a
              commandline   parameter   to   the   loader   to  specify  which
              configuration should be booted with  the  following  syntax  (by
              default the first label is used):
              <partition_number>/<label> param=value param=value ...
              This results in a boot command like:
              boot 3/rz0 1/linux-2.4 console=ttyS3

       image=<path>
              With  this  token,  you  can  tell delo where to find the actual
              kernel image.

       append=<options>
              You can use this token to pass options to the kernel,  like  the
              root  device,  or  the system console. One special append option
              evaluated by delo is the initrd parameter.  You  can  specify  a
              path  to  a gzipped initrd image which is preloaded and provided
              to the kernel. This requires  a  kernel  with  support  for  the
              rd_start and rd_size kernel parameters (see t-rex(1) for further
              information). The Debian  kernel-image  packages  support  this,
              upstream kernels might need a patch.
