Please, Rahul

xzgv does not impact anything.

True, never the less I've fixed it: a gtk callback functions return value was declared void while it should be gboolean and it should return TRUE, that this worked with gcc3 is just plain luck.

A patch is forth coming, I'm still looking into some of the thumbnails being wrong for images whose width is not a multiple of 4. Its a pitch/stride != width issue, and I've already located it, but it needs some surgery to fix cleanly.

You are good. I thought it would take longer.


Once more, here is the fixed memtest86+ for F10. It works just fine (for me) even on new Intel G45.


Yes this is a more important issue, thanks for bringing it to our attention. First of all it would help if you could post a patch with your prepared fix, that is less cumbersome to take a quick peek then an srpm. This is important because, for example yesterday I clicked at the bug report you linked and when only seeing srpm's went on with other stuff. If there would have been a patch attached I would have clicked it, and if it is cleanly I would have tried to get it in to Fedora asap. But the srpm was just too big of a hurdle (given that memtest is not a package I maintain, nor is xzgv btw).

Here are the differences using Fedora original spec (although the .src.rpm is slightly different):



The fix is simple, and the grub entry is going to be this way:

title Memtest86+ v2.11
        kernel --type=netbsd /memtest86+-2.11

It has been working fine for me, with a lot of different computers,
for about two years.

I would like to add that I always have a /boot partition.

I never tested it with a different configuration (without /boot, for instance) or
using lvm. Maybe nothing does change, but this is why I always avoided to
to get involved, because I do not have how to test all of the configurations.
