RE: Grub fails where Lilo succeeds?!?

Hi Robert.

I did report the problem in a more complete and a less provocative manner, as per:


But no one, it seems, thinks this is interesting.

Meanwhile, yes I do love grub, which is why I am resorting to this kind of "shot in the dark" because frankly, I can't accept that nobody is able to give a straight answer about this problem.

So the fundamental question here is: Can we make grub access a different memory adress space? If not, what is the standard practice for systems running applications with large vmalloc requirements.

That won't help. If you don't like grub, don't use it.

If you want to fix grub, then report the problem properly. I recall reading
something about this but can't remember. Please re-send your message if this
is so.
