Is there any version provided for debug (plpbt.bin)?
« on: December 03, 2009, 09:31:58 AM »
i use plpbt.bin by grub:
the command as follow:

titile boot from usb2.0 mode(by plpbt.bin)
kernel (hd0,0)/plpbt.bin

it have been tested by thousands people , but the compatibility is not too optimistic,  the past few days I have received feedback from more than a dozen cases of BUG. But i do not know how to feedback to you. So, to ask, is there any version provides for debug?
when they choose the menu,and then shows as "linux-z...",then hangs.if they use the usb keybord or mouse,maybe it is unuseful,except reboot the computer by cool reset.

I'm sorry for my poor english and it is most translated  by google.

best wishes

its required to test with the test version above. the version of 29/11/2009 has only a new installer. the boot manager did not change.

not hang is good. i was wrong, the test version has the bugfix included. i require the debug infos only if the boot manager hangs.

if it hangs, then it does not repeat the chars. so you will see less than 10 chars. i want to know those chars. currently i think that the bug you reported multiple times and the bug that i fixed a few days before are the same. so the upcoming boot manager version will not hang.

ok, this is completely different from that what i was thinking of where it hangs!

does it hang too when the boot manager is started from floppy or cdrom?

do you use grub4dos or grub and which version number?

and test without the hidden mode. how can you give a bug report when you see nothing. does it hang during the usb detection or later?

what kind of usb hardware is connected?

because i use the hide mode so we din't test boot from cdrom or flopy.
i use ther grub4dos the verison number is 0.4.4 downed from URL:http://download.gna.org/grub4dos/
if they don't use the hide mode ,they all can in to the boot menu,when they select the usb,and they hang,i think they all hang during USB detection
we all use the USB2.0 flash disk,2G,4G or 8G

well ,I just had received a feedback ,the fourth i sent to you ,the message as follow ,Somewhat like the first .

motherbord
ASUS P5PL2-E

i tried the following on different machines

booting grub4dos 0.4.4 from bios usb
starting the plop boot manager from grub4dos
booting usb from the boot manager and start grub4dos
then i booted ultimate boot cd for windows from the usb drive

it was working without problems. i don't know whats going wrong on your machines

that they use it from network is an additional new important info. its difficult to find solutions without all infos. they should try the latest version 5.0.5 and if it does not work, i have no solution for the moment.

post no more picture of screens with the debug output.

OH ,you may don's understand me what i says.
i mean i recevied all the fallback from network  by who use the plpbt.bin,i have use you plpbt.bin to grub4dos as above command,it's Accelerating effect is really
Significantly, Especially in the old motherboard USB1.1.it's a great software,so i hope i can offer your info As much as possible to help you improve your soft.

i will't send you no more pictures.
by the way ,they all used the last 5.0.5 version,but they all hang when they choose the USB option.The purpose i use the plpbt.bin is to Accelerate USB's boot speed.

best wishes  gzk101 from china.

 i'm sorry for my poor english ,i hope you can understand me
