Fix abort loading NVIDIA SFS in initrd

December 03, 2023 — BarryK

This mechanism was posted about in this blog post:

This is in Easy 5.6.4; however, it doesn't work. All NVIDIA SFSs get rejected. The test should be:

lspci | grep -qF 'Class 0300: 10de:'

The fix is in this commit:

Now, with the next release of Easy, the NVIDIA SFS will not load if there is no NVIDIA GPU detected, otherwise will load. This is for booting a USB flash stick on different computers.
