Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 495274
"Run from RAM" is documented but not available
Last modified: 2013-01-10 00:09:31 EST
Description of problem: The top-level README of Fedora-11-Snap1-i686-Live.iso documents an operating mode "Run from RAM" which is suggested for higher performance with at least 1GB RAM. However, there is no corresponding menu item in isolinux/isolinux.cfg.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
How reproducible: every time
Steps to Reproduce:
1. inspect Fedora-11-Snap1-i686-Live
Actual results: The boot mode "Run from RAM" is listed in the top-level README file at line 41, but the menu items in isolinux/isolinux.cfg are only Boot, Verify and Boot, Memory Test, and Boot from local drive. None of those choices creates Run from RAM.
Expected results: Some boot menu option which invokes Run from RAM.
The boot menu option hasn't been there for a while and was removed intentionally. While the functionality is still present, it's not something that makes a lot of sense to expose to users as its largely a good way to get yourself into a bad situation
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 11 development cycle.
Changing version to '11'.
