Subject: live-build: Missing support to set syslinux timeout from lb_config
Date: Fri, 16 Nov 2012 17:57:06 +0100
Package: live-build
Version: 3.0~a51-1
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

It seems lb config cannot set the syslinux timeout from command line any more
as once was the case with the '--syslinux-timeout' option. The timeout for e.g.
isolinux seems to be hardcoded in
/usr/share/live/build/bootloaders/isolinux/isolinux.cfg (timeout 0).

I use a sed command in a binary hook as a workaround:

  sed -i 's,timeout 0,timeout 30,' 'binary/isolinux/isolinux.cfg'

It works for me but this is a bit "user unfriendly" :-S

Best regards,

V.

this is on purpose. if you would like to change a theme, you'll have to
either use a hook or 'create' your own by copying the config file to the
config tree at the right location (depending on the version of lb) and
modify it there locally.
