Description Kevin Zheng 2018-12-24 01:19:12 UTC
Created attachment 200419 [details]

Per the attached patch, loader1.efifat should be used with gpart's partcode argument, not the bootcode argument as the man page suggests.

This is relevant for all EFI-capable STABLE but not CURRENT, because CURRENT recently axed boot1.efifat.
