Re: [Libguestfs] [PATCH v4 1/2] v2v: bootloaders: search grub config for all distributions

This patch improves the search of grub config on EFI partition. This
means that the config will be found not only for rhel but also for
many other distributions.  Tests were performed on the following
distributions: centos, fedora, ubuntu, suse. In all cases, the config
path was /boot/efi/EFI/*distname*/grub.cfg

The main purpose of the patch is to improve support for converting of
vm with UEFI for most distributions. Unfortunately this patch does not
solve the problem for all distributions, for example Debian does not
store grub config on the EFI partition, therefore for such
distributions another solution is necessary.

Thank you for the help!

I found an interesting post on your blog( https://rwmj.wordpress.com/tag/virt-efivars/ ) about editing NVRAM. I think it's a good idea to make the possibility of NVRAM settings. It will improve conversion for EFI vm's and solve the problem for some distributions which don't support fallback
(for example it's ubuntu and debian). Are there any plans to add this
functionality to libguestfs?
