There is a new version v2.8.2 of the Gujin bootloader at
http://gujin.org and sourceforge with bugfixes and improvements, and
Debian/Fedora packages for easy installation on i386/amd64 PC.
The major improvements are the possibility to review/edit the final
command line of the Linux kernel when selecting by Shift-F1..Shift-F12
or holding the shift key when selecting with the mouse; recognition
of Rock Ridge on ISO9660, and the direct booting of unmodified live
CDROM images stored in /boot or in the top-level of a partition by
automagically adding one of:
"from=" for CD images with label "NimbleX*"
"fromiso=" for CD images with label "sidux*" and "Elive*"
"root=live:LABEL=...:/" for CD images with label "Fedora*", "F1*",
"iso-scan/filename=" for any other (debian/ubuntu derivatives)
The correct commandline for those live CD images is provided
by a "distributed" file named "gujin.cmd" (i.e. all files found
with this name are concat'ed and then treated), a real world example
is in the source and install archive.
It would be nice if live-cdrom author would create a file
named gujin.cmd in the directory of the kernel containing:
::vmlinu*:initr*::name to appear on Gujin menu:essential command line parameters
::vmlinu*:initr*::alternative name:alternative parameters
The file "changelog.wri" in the source archive describes many other
modifications, fixing a lot of bugs.
