Re: Call For Help: Accessibility support in d-i

The problem is that syslinux incorrectly computes amount of data it should read to load a kernel. Attached patch fixes this. With this patch applied I can boot from access floppy. Also tested it with netboot (PXE) and d-i boot.img. I does not understand however why does syslinux works with other kernels without patch.
