[syslinux] Voidlinux integration

Hi there,

I despise complexity and Grub has been giving me headaches on Voidlinux..


I've switched to Syslinux, but I have the following queries.

├─sda1 vfat   FAT32       D91B-36F7                             190.7M    61% /boot
└─sda2 ext4   1.0         0dd25845-8fa5-41e9-b82c-c63c27cf5d18   49.5G    50% /

When I do a linux update, the Void package drops in a new files that look like vmlinuz-5.6.6_1/initramfs-5.6.6_1.img. How does one generate the /boot/EFI/syslinux/syslinux.cfg ? 

Since /boot is FAT32, no symlinks can be used.

Ideally syslinux could just allow me to browse and select the kernel/initrd, but that doesn't appear possible to do.

Kind regards,
