Please read bugs on `boot-floppies', and recent postings to the
It turns out that the cure is to use a more recent `syslinux', and a
zImage kernel, rather than a bzImage. I don't know for sure, but I'm
guessing that the only difference between the tecra kernel and the
standard one is that the standard kernel is a bzImage and the tecra
one is a zImage.
I imagine that boot-floppies-2.0.7 will incorporate this bugfix.
Could someone who knows about it tap us down a quick paragraph
explaining the difference between a zImage and a bzImage, please?
Why does it cause a reboot or a freezup?
