Description of problem:
I need pxegrub and am attempting to build it on FC4, freshly installed with 'Everything' to a VIA C3/Epia motherboard.

Grub compiles fine without netboot, but attempting to build diskless support produces a compile-time error.

Apologies if this is the wrong place for this, but I've searched everywhere I can think of. I noticed there were no GCC4 patches for the netboot directory - if this is the source of the errors does this mean building grub netboot on FC4 isn't supported yet?

Have tried this with stock grub-0.95-13.src.rpm and grub-0.95-16.src.rpm.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install grub-0.95-16.src.rpm
2. Add '--enable-diskless --enable-via-rhine' to the grub.spec %configure line
3. Build with 'rpmbuild -bb grub.spec'

Actual Results:  [...]

This report targets the FC3 or FC4 products, which have now been EOL'd.

Could you please check that it still applies to a current Fedora release, and
either update the target product or close it ?

Comment 2 petrosyan 2008-03-09 13:20:16 EDT
Fedora Core 4 is no longer maintained.

Setting status to "INSUFFICIENT_DATA". If you can reproduce this bug in the
current Fedora release, please reopen this bug and assign it to the
corresponding Fedora version.
