Description John Hodrien 2007-03-13 13:09:19 UTC
Description of problem:
menu.c32 seems to behave differently in FC6 than with FC5, such that it sits on
a timeout with "Automatic boot in 10 seconds" but doesn't actually boot.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
syslinux-3.11-4

How reproducible:
Happens everytime I try to boot with this config.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Use the config
2. Try a PXE boot
  
Actual results:
Machine sits in menu

Expected results:
Machine waits for 10 seconds and then boots

Additional info:
Switching menu.c32 for the one from syslinux-3.10-2.2 (FC5) and all is well.

ONTIMEOUT wasn't necessary for FC5 but I thought I'd add it in to see if that
helped (which is doesn't).

Is this working ok with Fedora7-test3 and the syslinux release shipped
there?

Thanks,
