I am trying to build a grub bootloader-firmware for a Diskonchip-2000 (16MB)
Therefor, I used the howto found at
The DOC should be used in a small x86-PC-system. It is devided in only one
ext2-partition, where a 2.6.9-Kernel is located in /boot and a menu.lst
file in /boot/grub.
My development PC uses Fedora Linux Core 3.
I was able to build grub_firmware in /stage1 directory only for one time;
but i cannot remember the combination of grub package and mtd-patch anymore.
After installing it on the DOC using M-System´s DOS-TOOLS, grub successfully
booted from it. But unfortunately grub says: Error 23: Error while parsing
Using the DOC in my development PC, grub was able to recognize the
ext2-filesystem on my hard disk (root hd(0,0)).
I tried to build the Grub sources from CVS with the mtd-grub-patch
2003-11-10 (not compiling) and 2003-01-08 (compiling, but no
grub_firmware).With these patches, I also tried the grub-0.92 (also with
grub-0.92-patch) and grub-0.95 packages from the ftp-server, but all
combinations were not able to compile successfully.
I did it this way:
1)Patch grub with patch p0 i ../mtd/patches/<patch-file>
2)aclocal && autoconf add-missing && automake
3)./configure enable-diskonchip-2000 enable-diskonchip-ctrlbypass
enable-ext2fs disable-ffs disable-xfs disable-jfs disable-vstafs
disable-reiserfs disable-minix disable-fat
Can anybody tell me a working combination or how to fix my problem? Or can I
use an alternative bootloader (unfortunately, i did not find any information
about using lilo)?
I also would be happy if anybody would send me his/her grub_firmware file.
