Boot Sabayon ISO via GRUB2 - no luck

Post by cgherman » Wed Apr 23, 2014 5:55

I have tried to boot Sabayon 14.05 via GRUB2 so following Gentoo wiki - - I added following entry in grub.cfg:

menuentry "Sabayon GNOME ISO" {
set cmdline="dokeymap looptype=squashfs loop=/livecd.squashfs cdroot"
set isofile="/mnt/iso/Sabayon_Linux_14.05_amd64_GNOME.iso"
loopback loop (hd0,gpt6)${isofile}
linux (loop)/boot/sabayon ${cmdline} root=/dev/ram0 isoloop=${isofile}
initrd (loop)/boot/sabayon.igz

But no luck, seems the boot process not find / and crash in kernel panic.

Can you indicate some advice for me where is the problem?

maybe this wiki is of more help:
HOWTO: Run Sabayon Without Burning The Image
linux is free, the expertise to harness it is not!
you don't make so much money selling open source software!
You make MORE money USING it, just like google!
