[HEADS UP] Syslinux 6.00 released
Here is the message just posted on the syslinux mailing list by Matt Fleming:
Finally, the Syslinux 6.00 release is out. This release includes support
for booting from EFI, both from disk-based media and over the network
via PXE. Thanks to everyone who has been testing this out.
There are some EFI bugs that I'm aware of,
* booting Linux kernels without CONFIG_RELOCATABLE doesn't work
* 64-bit syslinux.efi cannot boot 32-bit kernels and vice versa
* displaying of Fn files messes up the console.
Please do test out the release and report any regressions. I'm
particularly interested to hear about any problems with the BIOS code,
which will be a result of introducing the 'firmware' abstraction that
allows the BIOS and EFI backends to coexist.
Just wondering: does than mean that we will be able to EFI boot Slackware-14.2 (or 15?) installer with isolinux instead of elilo?
