Distribution name and version shown during bootup

June 29, 2022 — BarryK

I received an email from Rodney, pointing out that Easy 4.2.2 doesn't show what version is booting.

Yes, of course, that is a simple little thing to implement. Once past the boot manager, the 'initrd' launches and the first text that displays is "Finding drives".

I have now implemented a text string before that, in bright green, like this:

"EasyOS Dunfell64, version 4.2.3"

Thanks for the suggestion, Rodney.
