Dear all,
I packaged syslinux 6.03-pre9 on AMD64 Debian Sid, however, the problem
is, I have problem to use it for PXE booting (BIOS mode).
It always gives me "Failed to load COM32 file vesamenu.c32".
I am sure all the settings are correct because if I switch to the
prebuilt syslinux downloaded from
then it works very well.
My deb is here:
and the build log:
Anything I have to pay attention when compiling on AMD64/X86-64 arch?
Thanks in advance.
