rEFInd is a fork of the rEFIt EFI boot manager. I ran into some issues building rEFInd on Mac OS X with the EDKII using the Makefile(s) provided by the author, which are intended to be used for building on Linux. A number of
ld options used are incompatible with the Mac OS X toolchain. Rather than do the right thing and figure out what the appropriate options are, I’ve just dumped the rEFInd source into a new Package in the EDKII and added DSC and DEC files to get it to build on OS X.
The build information files can be found on github.
Prepare and build your EDKII environment (outside of the scope of this document).
Clone the repository into the root directory of the EDKII.
$ cd /path/to/edk2 $ git clone https://github.com/snarez/refind-edk2.git RefindPkg
Download the latest version of the rEFInd source into the RefindPkg directory and unpack it.
$ cd RefindPkg $ wget http://downloads.sourceforge.net/project/refind/0.4.5/refind-src-0.4.5.zip $ unzip refind-src-0.4.5.zip
Create a symlink so that the path referred to in the DSC file makes sense.
$ ln -s refind-0.4.5 refind
Build the package.
$ cd .. $ source edksetup.sh $ build -p RefindPkg/RefindPkg.dsc
This works for me on Mac OS X 10.7.4 with Xcode 4.4.1 and its command line tools. Drop me a line if you have any problems.
