Description of problem:
Intel DDR2 Jarrell SATA system fails in grub-loader with
Error 13: Invalid or unsupported executable format
The system was okay with the previous rhel-3.0-u3 / fedora core 2
The system worked after using "grub" from SLES9.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Have a Intel SATA Jarrell System
2. Install a system which has grub-0.95-3
3. Use this boot-loader
Actual Results: Error 13 .....
Expected Results: System boots
Same error happens with fedora Core 3, which uses also grub-0.95.3
Error does not happen on Intel SCSI Jarrell System
This means that what's being read off of the filesystem doesn't appear
to be a valid kernel image.
Could you please provide more information on what a "Jarrell" system is?
The Intel Jarrell System has a motherboard with 7520 chipset and
nocona processors and DDR2 memory and sata onboard (ata_piix driver)
and optional scsi onboard.
There is no problem when using SCSI discs but with the SATA
discs the described error occurs.
I can boot my system, when I copy the lines from the grub/menu.lst
title rhel .....
to a different grub/menu.lst ( e.g. from SuSE/SLES )
and boot my system via this menu.
I suppose, it would also work if I use the grub-loader of
rhel-3.0 oder fedora core 2.
Bug is fixed with upgrade to grub-0.95-3.1
Please provide this fix also to fedora core 3.
Closing out based on comment 3.
