[puredyne] boot cycle on puredyne-1010-gazpacho-CD-i386-alpha

Hi,

Just tried puredyne-1010-gazpacho-CD-i386-alpha.iso. It has a later
datestamp than -alpha2 on the rsync which is why I used that one, but
am I wrong?

I tried the CD in two laptops - on both of them the nice grub screen
appeared, but selecting any option (or waiting for the timeout) simply
immediately re-showed the grub screen (the timeout reset back to
start). Known issue?

hummm, I seem to remeber this from a previous version that you had to
let the time run out for it to boot. Selecting and clicking does
nothing. Does that work?

cheers,
martin

Yes, two known issues.

- name fuckup. the rsycn version should have been renamed to alpha3 but
  somehow ended being named alpha, when we already had alpha2.

- syslinux fuckup (not grub AFAICT). syslinux tries to boot a vmlinuz
  kernel with an initrd.img file but none of them are present on the
disk, instead there is a vmlinuz-blabla and an initrd-blabla.img. If you
manually point to the right files it boots fine (use TAB to edit the
boot command and mount -o loop the ISO to check the exact file names if
you're curious). I made a broth hook to rename the files when building
the ISO but I did not have time to build a new one (alpha4).

Hi,

Thanks. Just pushed a hacky little hook which renames the image files
(aymeric, your hook didn't seem to be in the bzr broth), which for me
created a bootable ISO.
