#6140 closed enhancement (fixed)

[PATCH] Enable keyboard options for boot menu

Reported by: andreasf Owned by: andreasf
Priority: normal Milestone: R1
Component: System/Boot Loader Version: R1/Development
Keywords: Cc:
Blocked By: Blocking:
Platform: PowerPC


On OpenFirmware platform boot options are currently hardcoded to 0 (i.e., none).

The following patch provides a non-blocking facility to check for a key press and adds support for space bar and escape key options.

The key must be pressed after the keyboard and screen are initialized but before Welcome to the Haiku bootloader! is printed.

In particular this enables to bypass the frame buffer (#6105).

This could be useful for x86 too, no?

x86 was the inspiration for this. If it's not working on your machine, please file a separate bug.
