Hi there,

I'm using an embedded device sold by a german company called SSV.

Further Information about the device can be found on the following URL.

The IDE Interface is a very basic one.

Starting with syslinux 1.51 the system stopped booting correctly (1.67 does
not work as well).

With syslinux Version up to 1.50 erything works fine.

The boot sequence of newer Versions looks like this:

FlashFx 4.02.204 (386 DOS)

Datalight Patent US#5860082

SYSLINUX 1.67 2002-02-03  Copyright (C) 1994-2001 H. Peter Anvin
Loading fs.gz...
Afterwards the System hangs.

It has to be mentioned, that there is an Onboard Flash memory which can be
booted from using ROM-DOS. Probably this driver interferes with the syslinux

Is there a possibility to compile syslinux in Verbose Mode?
