Announcing efibootmgr-0.3.0, a Linux user-space application which
interacts with the EFI Boot Manager.  It may be downloaded from

This requires the efivars module be loaded, and expects them
to be at /proc/efi/vars/* which is consistent with the kernel
2.4.4 IA-64 patch.  You must be root to run this (as /proc/efi/vars/*
are only read/write root).

Changes since v0.2.0:

* Fri May 18 2001 Matt Domsch <Matt_Domsch@dell.com>
- Padded HARDDRIVE_DEVICE_PATH out to please EFI Boot Manager.
- Incorporated patches from Andreas Schwab
  - replace __u{8,16,32,64} with uint{8,16,32,64}_t
  - fix a segfault
- release v0.3.0

I believe this is functional, would be happy for the various
distributions to include this.  As always, comments and patches (such as
sent by Andreas!) are appreciated.
