Subject: Please add a count down timer to the boot menu of debian-live
Date: Wed, 22 Feb 2012 03:16:32 +0100
Package: live-boot

On some systems the USB keyboard fails to initialize in time for the
boot menu. This makes it impossible to boot if one does not have a PS2
keyboard handy. It would be nice to have a timer to make it possible
to boot at all.

close 660811
thanks

Hi,

we're using the same 'boot menu' type as d-i does, on purpose. the d-i 
one does not have a timeout, so debian-live images will have no timeout 
either.

If you want a timeout on the prebuilt and official images, please 
discuss this with the d-i people and we'll adapt if they change. As a 
workaround, you can build your own image, see live-manual for more 
information on how to do this.

Regards,
Daniel
