Hi,

I am trying to separate my style/layout information and use the INCLUDE statement so I only have to edit 1 config file to change style/layout information for multiple menu configs but the INCLUDE command won't include the file and all I end up with is the default unstyled menu. any idea's if I am doing something wrong?

I am using ISOLINUX 3.82
Just to be clear: The same style/layout information works fine if I have it directly in the MAIN.CFG file. it is only when I try to use INCLUDE from a separate file that I have the problem

the config files are below.

/boot/ISOLINUX/MAIN.CFG
UI VESAMENU.C32

INCLUDE /boot/ISOLINUX/STYLE.CFG

MENU TITLE Advanced Recovery CD

DEFAULT ARC



F1 F1.txt



# timeout 200

Can you try MENU INCLUDE instead of INCLUDE?

INCLUDE filename [tagname]
MENU INCLUDE filename [tagname]

Include the contents of the configuration file filename at
this point.

In the case of MENU INCLUDE, the included data is only seen by
the menu system; the core syslinux code does not parse this
command, so any labels defined in it are unavailable.

If a tagname is included, the whole file is considered to have
been bracketed with a MENU BEGIN tagname ... MENU END pair,
and will therefore show up as a submenu.

Can you upload a iso (only the ISOLINUX files, not the ARC files)?

ok problem seems to be solved.
I re-downloaded ISOLINUX and now it is working fine with INCLUDE. I can only think that a file must have gotten mixed around with an old version of ISOLINUX or something.

thank you for your quick reply!

You always need to update all files of Syslinux when you use a newer (or older) version.

You never should only update isolinux.bin or install syslinux and don't update the *.c32 modules. It can work, but it isn't recommended because it can be that they aren't compatible.
