 +===== 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. You'll notice an error like 'ioctl: LOOP_SET_FD: Invalid argument' [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)." [mika]
 +
 +===== isolinux fails with 'Could not find kernel image: grml' =====
 +
 +  * Another warning you might get is 'Unknown keyword in config file'. Your BIOS seems to be broken. The problem has been [[http://syslinux.zytor.com/archives/2006-April/006784.html|reported to isolinux/syslinux upstream]]. 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]
 +
 +===== some PCMCIA WLAN cards don't work out of the box =====
 +
 +  * Deprecated pcmcia-cs was removed with grml 0.6. Now pcmcia¬≠utils is state-of-the-art. Some kernel drivers (like for example PCMCIA WLAN cards) are not autoloaded by default now. They should work anyway by loading the module manually. Run for example 'hwinfo --netcard' to figure out which network module has to be loaded. (Some more information regarding the device is available via 'udevinfo -a -p /sys/class/net/eth0/'). [mika]
 +
 +===== running grml-lang with unknown parameter fails =====
 +
 +  * running grml-lang using a not supported parameter outputs: "line 62: return: can only `return' from a function or sourced script"; notice: this does not affect the usability of grml-lang itself, it's just a cosmetic error (fixed in new grml-scripts package) [mika]
 +
 +===== /usr/include/linux does not link to /usr/src/linux/include/linux/ =====
 +
 +If you get errors like (for example when running 'make menuconfig' on kernel-source):
 +
 +<code>
 +In file included from /usr/include/bits/posix1_lim.h:153,
 +                 from /usr/include/limits.h:144,
 +                 from /usr/lib/gcc/i486-linux-gnu/4.0.3/include/limits.h:122,
 +                 from /usr/lib/gcc/i486-linux-gnu/4.0.3/include/syslimits.h:7,
 +                 from /usr/lib/gcc/i486-linux-gnu/4.0.3/include/limits.h:11,
 +                 from scripts/basic/fixdep.c:113:
 +/usr/include/bits/local_lim.h:36:26: error: linux/limits.h: No such file or directory
 +[...]
 +</code>
 +
 +fix it via running:
 +
 +<code>
 +cd /usr/include/
 +mv linux/ivtv.h /usr/src/linux/include/linux/
 +rm -rf linux
 +ln -s /usr/src/linux/include/linux linux
 +</code>
 +
 +Problem reported by Roberto Murer, thanks! [mika]
 +
 +===== symlink /dev/cdrom does not exist =====
 +
 +The symlink /dev/cdrom does not exist. This is not a serious problem in live-CD mode. If you are running a harddisk-installation activate the udev-rules running either:
 +
 +<code>
 +# cd /etc/udev/rules.d/
 +# ln -s ../cd-aliases-generator.rules   z75_cd-aliases-generator.rules
 +</code>
 +
 +or update the udev package running 'apt-get update ; apt-get install udev'. Problem reported by Gebi, fix by mika, updated udev-package by tklauser.
