I think there may be a misunderstanding here.
Are you saying that when installing ldlinux.sys + ldlinux.bss v5.01 on a
FAT filesystem, the installer needs to perform something different than
when when installing ldlinux.sys + ldlinux.bss v5.10 (outside of the
differences prompted by the bss itself)?
So far I haven't found any major differences in the processing of these
two files for FAT installation of Syslinux between 4.06 and 5.10, so
that would be news to me. If there exist any differences in the steps to
install a .sys+.bss from one version to the next, I would of course very
much like to get an overview of what they are, so that I can update my app.
I didn't mention the bss until now, because that's a 512 bytes file and
not much of a concern. Of course, if the idea is that we would append
ldlinux.sys to isolinux.bin, ldlinux.bss would preferably have to be
Would an isolinux.bin that includes ldlinux.sys + ldlinux.bss from the
same version as the ISO's .c32 still not be enough to get Syslinux
installed on USB, and working with these modules?
