Description

The current code does have predefined console color schema with black and white and while there is option to change colors in boot loader script (or manually), it would be good to have option for build time setup to avoid flicker and delays on boot if we would like to have different kind of default.

As an example, we define two color schemas; one for release build, another for non-release build.

History

#1

Updated by Toomas Soome 5 months ago

Tested with 2 build/install/boot cycles; one build with setting DEFAULT_CONSOLE_COLOR in env file,
another with RELEASE_CONSOLE_COLOR and DEBUG_CONSOLE_COLOR.

Note: UEFI case needs loader*.efi to be copied to ESP (or use chain command to start /boot/loader64.efi).
