Subject: BUG during cd and disk boot.
Content-Type: TEXT/PLAIN; charset=US-ASCII
Debian version 2.0.2 and I'm sure current versions.
Failure to boot from CD or Disks due to an 'A20 gating failure' problem,
on my 380Z Thinkpad...and I'm sure many other laptops and systems.
resc1440.bin just dies after loading linux...
resc1440tecra.bin also dies, but displays "A20 gating failure"
This is a known problem, as I have read on the debian-boot list.
This should be fixed in the official disks & cd boot images, OR
an alternate set of disks and cd-boot/loadlin images should be created.
