If you have any problems (e.g. does not compile) with this package, consider the binary shells:

Build fails due to non-initialized git submodules:

Fixes with adding git submodule update --init to _prepare_tianocore_sources()

Yes, I've done that now, thanks for the suggestion. Seems sensible and it even simplifies the PKGBUILD a bit as a nice little bonus.

Can you remove the python2 references, and add the normal "python" package (for python3) to the "makedepends" array? Upstream has supported python3 since February 2019:

Thank you for adopting :)

Flubbadub commented on 2019-11-06 09:05

I adopted this just so that I could apply the fix suggested by GeneArch (after testing it) but I'm happy to pass it over to someone else who's interested & more knowledgeable than myself. If no one contacts me I will do my best to keep things working as expected.

By looking at the file src/edk2/ShellPkg/ShellPkg.dsc

It is clear 2 versions of the shell are built. The 2nd one is :

# # Build a second version of the shell with all commands integrated # ShellPkg/Application/Shell/Shell.inf { <Defines> FILE_GUID = EA4BB293-2D7F-4456-A681-1F22F42CD0BC

So this is the one we will use

i.e. the shell to rename is Shell_EA4BB293-2D7F-4456-A681-1F22F42CD0BC.efi

Which means the change to PKGBUILD is simple:

In package()

Add a variable:


change install to use above guid
install -D ..../Shell_${GUID}.efi" ...

I am getting the same error as GeneArch. I assume we can just rename one of the efi files as Shell.efi but which one?

GeneArch commented on 2019-09-01 19:34

Getting Error now: src/edk2/Build/Shell/RELEASE_GCC5/X64/Shell.efi': No such file or director

Directory contains these now not Shell.efi 900 src/edk2/Build/Shell/RELEASE_GCC5/X64/Shell_7C04A583-9E3E-4f1c-AD65-E05268D0B4D1.efi 968 src/edk2/Build/Shell/RELEASE_GCC5/X64/Shell_EA4BB293-2D7F-4456-A681-1F22F42CD0BC.efi

Not sure what the difference is or if one of them is what we should now be using?

Build went fine, this error is in install phase

Although, installing it directly to /boot is not a good idea, because it may not be on the ESP. I would prefer an installer program, like bootctl or memtest86-efi.
