• \[solved\] What should I do after upgrading syslinux.


    A few days ago syslinux got upgraded from something to 6.3. After the installation I got one of those messages telling me further action is needed.

    ==\> For setting up Syslinux BIOS using the syslinux-install\_update script follow   
    https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Syslinux\#Automatic\_Install  
      
    ==\> For setting up Syslinux EFI follow  
    https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Syslinux\#UEFI\_Systems  
      
    ==\> The syslinux-install\_update script does not currently support EFI install
    

    So I take a look over at the wiki, and I can’t tell if that only applies to recent installation or if I need to do something with a current installation.

    Even then, I’m a little fuzzy on how I should proceed if action is required. Do I just

    \# syslinux-install\_update -i -a -m
    

    It seems as if even if I need to run that bit of code, I shouldn’t need to reconfigure.

    Also, I should make a note that I use GRUB as my bootloader. It seems as if, in the configuration section, that syslinux is being used in place of GRUB.

  • If you are using grub then there is no need for syslinux. Perhaps another package you installed pulled in syslinux as a dependency? Try to remove it and pacman will tell you if that is the case.

    Cheers!

  • Ah, thank you.

  • You’re welcome
