comment out the line referring to "#define SMP"
then rebuild the diagnostic as follows:
Check the date/time stamp on the following file
to ensure that you have just "built" it under Linux.
You can make a bootable floppy disk as follows
dd if=memtest.bin of=/dev/fd0
You can make a bootable partition for LiLo by doing
cp -v memtest.bin /boot/memtest.bin
Then configure an additional Linux partition with
Finally manually edit this new partition in the file
to have parameters
img = /boot/memtest.bin
label = memtest
root = /dev/"whatever" - Whatever is root partition
and install the new "LiLo" by typing
Please note that I included the "memtest.bin"
ready-to-boot image as a convenience, in case
people did not have Linux. Usually people with
older operating systems can read "tar" archives,
so I did not "bzip2" this archive before I
uploaded it to the reflector as
People without Linux (i.e. "DOS" users) should
still be able to extract "memtest.bin" even though
they are unable to build it from the "C" sources.
