Some general problems

Fails to boot on some older AMD systems

  • Grml fails to boot on some olders AMD systems, see issue753. (Daily ISOs which address this issue will be available after kernel 2.6.32 has been released.)

Bootsplash isn't visible

  • Some (few) systems might not present a bootsplash (see issue757). Problem seems to be caused by EFI. The grml daily ISOs already include a fix for this problem.

Memtest86+ bootentry doesn't work within GRUB2

  • The GRUB2 memtest86+ bootmenu option does not work as-is (note that Grml uses Isolinux by default, so unless you either select GRUB2 from the boot menu or dd(1) it onto a USB stick, CF/SD card,… you won't be affected at all). Workaround: replace 'linux' with 'linux16' (type 'e' to edit the entry, move right, type '16' and hit ^X to boot).
