OK, now hat did I tell you to get so aggravated? I just said if you are really interested, come back on this thread, right? Did you read what I posted? It was like an authentication "enter the text you see" like thing
And of course, sorry for not welcoming you as I usually do to new members. Welcome to LQ!
And then to what you are asking. First of all GNU GRUB
is a bootloader. It has a manual
which might give you details you are searching. It is well detailed. And GRUB
has command interpretation ability
. For example it can provide you with a shell like environment. And about RAM disk, it's a part of neither kernel or GRUB
It's the way you ask lead the people to think you are doing a project. For example the question you asked about source code doesn't make any sense. And what do you mean by "How grub is executable in itself" is not clear. GRUB has the ability to run arbitary
(as it states commands
. That's why using a GRUB password is always encouraged. I guess you get a good picture about RAM disk and bootloader stages in acids post
. Hope these were helpful.
It's high time to mention a few things before I finish my post. Don't get cross with us, we'd love to have you around
Remember, LQ is a very friendly and helpful place. It's reputed for being friendly and is very popular. This active community of FOSS enthusiasts is what kept me hanging around, as for the other active members too. What is requested from members is very small, like give detailed clear descriptions of their problems, do self research before posting. You were somewhat lucky to get me and acid on this. Some members might have just ignored you or kicked you
So no need to get into a tone like that. You are welcome here
, as long as you want to be.
