Subject: Re: grub2 with SPARC support available for testing



I tested grub2_2.02~beta3-4+sparc64.1 via the 2016-05-04 install media on t5220[1] hardware as well as in an ldom[2] and had no issues with the installation or subsequent boot via grub

Based on the discussion in #sparc about T5240 grub2 memory errors/memory-region issues, let me know if you want me to try an 'invalid' memory config on the T5220, or do any more debugging. I've also got a T5440 which can also be used for debugging various memory configurations if needed -- I just need to find sufficient electricity for it first.

I just uploaded grub2_2.02~beta3-3+sparc64 to Debian "unreleased" which
contains an additional set of 15 patches by Eric Snowberg (CC'ed) which
improve SPARC in grub2 and add support for modern SPARC hardware through
the SPARC T7.

I uploaded grub2_2.02~beta3-4+sparc64.1 to "unreleased" today which is
based on Eric's latest sparc-next-v2 branch [1]. This new version fixes
the build problems on non-sparc* targets. I'm not sure if it addresses
other issues, but Eric can maybe comment on this.

Thanks,
Adrian
