A collection of utilities to facilitate booting of Linux 2.6-based systems.
The process of finding the root volume either by label or explicit label= on the kernel command line, mounting it and 'switchroot'ing is automated.
BootUtils can also drop to emergency shell if the root volume cannot be mounted. Why not even start sshd and allow admin login if the box is in a remote location?
- Automatic detection of root volume by label or explicit kernel commandline option
- Supports ext2, ext3, jfs, reiserfs and xfs
- Emergency shell dropping in the case of a root volume problem
