 +======  Issues regarding grml 0.6 ======
  
 +You found a bug in [[http://grml.org/|grml 0.6]] not yet mentioned on this page or in [[http://bugs.grml.org/|the grml bug tracking system]]? [[http://grml.org/bugs/|Please report it!]] (Please don't forget to add your name and mailadress so we contact you if we have further questions.)
 +
 +===== LOSETUP =====
 +
 +  *  Due to problems with losetup on unionfs it is not possible to create a loop device with files on the live-cd _EXCEPT_ if the file is in /home/grml, /tmp or /ramdisk. [mika]
 +  * Notice: this is not a grml specific problem. See INSTALL file in unionfs sources: "If you want to use losetup, then you need to define -DSUPPORT_BROKEN_LOSETUP. You will be able to use it read-only, but when you try to use it read-write, you will get an Oops.  This should eventually be fixed when we have our own address-space operations (so that we can support sendfile)."
 +
 +===== isolinux fails with 'Could not find kernel image: grml' =====
 +
 +  * Your BIOS seems to be broken. Try to boot with 'linux26'. If this still does not work try to boot via [[http://btmgr.webframe.org/|btmgr]]. [Notice taken from [[problems|problems-webpage]]] [mika]
 +
 +===== GRMLCFG does not work with floppy disk =====
 +
 +  * bootoption autoconfig, activated by default and part of [[http://grml.org/config/|the grml config framework]], does not work with floppy disks. floppy disks with label GRMLCFG can't be located by blkid anymore, so grml.sh/config.tbz aren't used. Workaround: use another medium like harddisk partition. Issue has been forwarded [[http://bugs.grml.org//cgi/bugreport.cgi?bug=20|to BTS (#20)]] as well. [mika, issue reported by toolmaker]
 +
 +===== some PCMCIA WLAN cards don't work =====
 +
 +  * As mentioned in the [[http://grml.org/files/README-0.6.txt|changelog]] pcmcia¬≠utils replace pcmcia-cs. Some kernel drivers (like for example PCMCIA WLAN cards) are not autoloaded by default. They should work anyway by loading the module manually. Run 'hwinfo --netcard' to figure out which module has to be loaded. (Some more information regarding the device is available via 'udevinfo -a -p /sys/class/net/eth0/'). [mika]
 +
 +===== bootoption 'forensic' does not ignore RAID devices =====
 +
 +  * Partitions of type 0xfd are scanned and automatically assembled into RAID arrays by the kernel. The forensic bootoption does not take care of this yet, please boot using 'forensic raid=noautodetect' therefor.
 +
 +===== linux-wlan-ng drivers do not work =====
 +
 +  * The provided linux-wlan-ng drivers have problems with resolving kernel symbols ("p80211: Unknown symbol hotplug_path"). Updated and fixed drivers are available through the grml-repository. Run 'apt-get update ; apt-get install linux-wlan-ng-modules-2.6.15-grml' to install them. [issue reported by Steffen Liebergeld, notice by mika]
