BootManager: SFS handling improved

June 26, 2012 — BarryK
The BootManager offers to load SFS files at bootup, that is one of it's functions.

However, this cannot be done in the case of a full installation where there is no initrd, and hence no layered filesystem (unionfs or aufs).

I have modified BootManager to recognise this situation and explain how a SFS can be permanently installed by copying the files out of the SFS.

The BootManager also now recognises if shinobar's SFS-Load application is installed, and offers that as an alternative if load/unload on-the-fly is desired.
