Hi Eric, I finally managed to get memtest86-2.5 booting from the network, thanks to your stuff on ftp://download.linuxnetworx.com/pub/src/memtest86. It's one of some long term concerns, I had. Many thanks. Capeau. One slight glitch I hit, if someone's using it as 3rd network boot menue entry, which is triggered normally with key c. Because the keyboard buffer in memtest isn't cleared on start, the configuration menu pops up. Annoying... This isn't a call to fix it! I thing, I could fix it myself, but for now, I simply don't use it as the 3rd entry ;-) Then I tried to model a patch according to your 2.5.eb4 for 2.7.eb3, because there are issues with 2.5 on amd cpu's, but the resulting image is ways to large (140k) and system reboots when loaded. Did you looked into this issue yet? Maybe there is a simple way with a mknbi module for the job, but it seems nobody has worked out/made public such a beast until now. Hopefully yours, Hans-Peter =========================================================================== This Mail was sent to netboot mailing list by: Hans-Peter Jansen <firstname.lastname@example.org> To get help about this list, send a mail with 'help' as the only string in it's body to email@example.com.
