 +======  Issues regarding grml LinuxUser edition ======
  
 +===== Differences to grml 0.7 =====
 +
 +  * Default language/keyboard layout is german; boot using 'grml lang=us' to use grml's default one (english/us)
 +  * Fixed [[grml_0.7|known issues from grml 0.7]]
 +  * Updated packages to Debian unstable pool by 19th of April
 +  * Removed all LaTeX-related packages, some documentation packages, emacspeak, kaffe, valgrind, docbook/sgmltools-lite and groff size of grml-ISO is less than 610MB
 +
 +===== Bugs/Problems =====
 +
 +You found a bug in [[http://www.linux-user.de/|the grml LinuxUser edition]] not yet mentioned on this page? [[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. 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]
