Description (last modified by Xi Ruoyao)

The original description, leave here for "historical" reference:

this is an extremely useful utility for those of us with uefi; especially on a multi-boot machine. i've compiled it on a blfs system with no (okay, a few very tiny) problems. though i use the git master, they have releases available, too.

last release:
https://github.com/vathpela/efibootmgr/releases/tag/efibootmgr-0.12

This ticket caught my eye. The latest release is 14 which can be sourced from here:

https://github.com/rhinstaller/efibootmgr

The links in the description point to a fork.

Whilst I'm at it, my build info (for version 13) is: Required deps are efivar and pciutils.

Build instructions are:

make
install -D -m0755 src/efibootmgr /usr/bin/efibootmgr
install -D -m0644 src/efibootmgr.8 /usr/share/man/man8/efibootmgr.8

I cannot test this package. The only reason for efiboot is to dual boot with Windows and I have no Windows to test.

efibootmgr-17 is tagged but not "released". Anyway, efibootmgr-16 FTBFS with recent GCC so we'll use 17.

Milestone: 10.110,2

grub 2.06 will not be out for at least a couple of months. This ticket should be coordinated with that. Moving to 10.2 milestone.
