Re: /proc/efi/vars; reading contents


   I believe those are documented in the EFI spec available on
the developer.intel.com website.  I've attached what I get from
/proc/efi/vars/Lang-8be4df61-93ca-11d2-aa0d-00e098032b8c on a
zx2000.  I'd be happy to test any code you come up with on this
box.  Thanks,
