wrong help about boot parameters
Last modified: 2005-10-31 17:00:50 EST
Description of problem:
The text on page "F4-Kernel" of the phoebe cd1 boot menu says :
"... if a different installation mode is desired, enter it after the option(s)."
But I tested and both forms "linux text ide=nodma" and "linux ide=nodma text"
work without problems. So the text is misleading.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot the cd1
2. press F4 , see the text
3. boot with "linux text ide=nodma" or "linux ide=nodma text"
Both variations boot in text mode, with dma disabled
The first boot command should fail, according to the text.
The suggested format works. The fact that other things work is icing on the cake.
