Menu and options of PetitBoot
« on: March 30, 2020, 04:02:10 pm »
Hi guys, I asked Raptor why our Petitboot after starting BMC on Power, does not have the menu with all those options and information that the motherboards of X86 systems have, for example CPU type, speed, temperature, number of fans installed and their speed in real time, installed memory, speed of the same etc ... They sent me this link but I don't know how to use it and why even if I understand that my answer lies in this link. Can any of you explain to me more specifically this thing? Thanks

does that mean there is a request to improve the Petitboot menu? I'm reading this but I don't know if they want to understand this meaning or anything ...

They're saying that it's open source and someone(tm) can implement it if they want to sit down and do it.

What do you mean by making a request? I believe that it depends above all on who wants and has the ability to be able to do such a thing. Unfortunately I am not capable otherwise I would have done it. I think an X86 bios-style menu is very complete and provides different options and information about the machine ... It is something we are currently missing ...

And make a request about the desired features.
