Description Alan Cox 2003-09-28 10:14:01 EDT
Attempting to use a PXE install gets as far as remounting root read/write,
prints several messages indicating seeks outside the range of the actual disk
and then segfaults and dies.

add ramdisk_size=8192 to the kernel line and it works.

Jeremy knows about this one.

Comment 2 Jeremy Katz 2003-09-28 13:34:29 EDT
And it's worked around in the syslinux/isolinux config files as well as fixed in
newer kernel builds.
