Re: Installation troubles on UEFI/GPT laptop (possible bug?)
Are toi try to update gribouille ans boot netbsd in to grue ?
How tou boot on micro$oft ?
How tou boot on Windows an Linux for switch between ?
I suggest édit grue for boot for all tour système...
UEFI havé juste 100Mo for big Kernel is small, may be nerf to upper it... i imagine netbsd is the kernel to enough.
Best regard & tale café.
