Summary: for on https://ipxe.org/
In IRC was among other items this
Computer power on, boot sequence is started, iPXE code comes alive and
reports 'iPXE initialising devices...', some pause
and boot sequence repeats.
Which string to add to the make command to get information what happens
during initialising devices?
These answers came along:
That's the bootstrap part of iPXE, so you're probably in some of the pci* .c files
or architecture-dependent .c files
find . type -f | grep '\.c$' | sort
should give you an overview of which files you can enable DEBUG for
DEBUG=init to find out which high-level startup routine is running at that point
This posting saves that information now in the mailinglist archive.
And would like it ends up on the iPXE website.
Another snippet from IRC channel #iPXE at libera.chat:
13:59 < robinsmidsrod> It should probably be mentioned somewhere under
"Debug builds" in https://ipxe.org/download - it might not be clearly
enough stated. We could also add a utility script in the repo to list
all valid DEBUG= values and mention that in the docs.
Silence is hard to parse
