main/xen: build EFI binaries #1513
@kaniini Here's the second one.
It seems like it makes most sense to place them in /boot and thus in the xen-hypervisor package, this is like Debian I think. But if you believe that is a more intruding change before the release, maybe I can redo with a xen-efi package instead, and perhaps in the original /usr/lib64/efi location?
Yes, you are right. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think we have anything like that in Alpine yet?
Packages with EFI binaries that I've looked at now seem to store them in /usr somewhere, like:
Do you think it would be viable to keep them in /usr/lib64/efi for now, but perhaps in the xen-hypervisor package? It would be nice to get the binaries in place for 3.6, and then maybe pursue a general "EFI boot support" feature?
@kaniini Ok, cool, I'll try to push that asap.
If you want help with the EFI support, I can help out with testing and development, just let me know if there's something I can work on. I will be running at least some boxes now with Xen that I will boot from EFI.
