Just wanted to let the list know that I tried out Erik I.'s changes the
ldsegs.s and linkcmds, and got an ELF image booting with GrUB 0.5.
I did notice one other oddity, though. The image would not boot when I first
tried, so I used objcopy to copy from the original executable, which should
have been ELF format already, and specified an ELF target on the command line.
The resulting file was a few bytes bigger, and worked with the boot loader.
I assume that somewhere the output file is not getting the ELF header added
properly during the standard make. Which part of the the build would this be?
One of the included make files?
Is this something which has been corrected already with some of the patches
Rosamilda DaSilva has submitted?
