Here's a test image which is expected to fix the memory corruption as
well as many boot problems:
This image features the new the core format with an accordingly modified
os wrapper. The memory detection is currently bypassed and hard-set to
4MB. The bug located in meitnerium is fixed.
known issue: memstat displays the wrong memory statistics.
* things to test *
See if you can get to the prompt, then try to type and see if any
command is understood.
just do your best to make the system crash.
* what to do after testing *
If possible, please submit your results via the SF uuu-testing tracker
(please log in first if you have a SF account) If you are unable to
submit via the tracker you can email me directly. I'd like to get a
quick message from all people if the test works or not. In your results
- your type of CPU (intel/amd, 386/486/etc)
- how much RAM you have installed
- what type of keyboard you have (AT or PS/2)
- any other hardware information you think could be relevant
Include the last 5 or so lines of text output. Also look up in the
upper-left corner for any numbers and note them, if present. A complete
list of everything you did from the time uuu booted until the bug was
found is extremely helpfull.
Thank you for your help in testing Uuu. Good luck!
