Description Joachim Backes 2006-05-31 05:18:38 EDT
Description of problem: I tried to boot over network with grub. But The FC5 grub
is not able to boot over network: the "bootp" command is rejected:
   GNU GRUB  version 0.97  (640K lower / 3072K upper memory)

 [ Minimal BASH-like line editing is supported.  For the first word, TAB
   lists possible command completions.  Anywhere else TAB lists the possible
   completions of a device/filename.]

grub> bootp

Error 27: Unrecognized command

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):grub-0.97-5

This bug is open for a Fedora version that is no longer maintained and
will not be fixed by Fedora. Therefore we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen thus bug against that version.

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.

Trying the same in F8 fails too. No check in F9 beta!
Comment 7 Oliver Henshaw 2009-05-12 17:54:34 EDT
This is still true in Fedora 10.
