I tested this package. here is what I get when I run it after
an install from CD + chroot /target+ add amd64 mirror to /etc/apt/sources.list+apt-get install grub
D: mbi.mem_lower = 0x280
D: RAW_ADDR (mbi.mem_lower * 10214) = 0x555f5000
D: len = 0x1
D: (addr - 0x100000) + len = 0x554cd201
D: RAW_ADDR (0x1000) = 0x55556000 RAW_ADDR(0x100000)=0x55655000
does that help ?
In the bios the mttr is set to continuous (I tested discrete but it was the same, at least to me)
PS btw when running lilo from cd install I see a seg fault. is that supposed to happen ?
