Re: configuring proprietary drivers at boot time
what you are looking for is exactly what we achieved for XBMC Live (see
http://xbmc.org). Our live CD is ubuntu-based though, since proprietary
drivers from Lucid onwards use update-alternatives hence they can be all
installed at build time.
Module blacklisting combined with one GPU autodetect script allow
generating a live CD that uses the proprietary drivers as well as the
standard Xorg drivers according to the installed GPU.
(Note that for our purposes we require accelerated OpenGL drivers hence
only Intel, proprietary NVIDIA and proprietary AMD are relevant for us)
You can find the live-build config tree on our git tree:
Relevant parts are:
as well as the runtime script that is part of a package of our own:
