Yes, this works perfectly except that I still can't read my openbsd

gives me 'out of partition' or similar.

Progress! :o)

In that case, it should be a fs problem, what's the disk layout, how
big is your ufs partition ? It could be handy if you can make a small
image that produce similar results.

I made a small openbsd image to send you, but it works perfectly with
your g2ldr so there's no point in sending it :o)  I think that problem
is not worth your time or mine.

I still have the bigger problem that my grub2 doesn't work like your
g2ldr.  My version still halts with 'broken magic' or reboots instantly
when I type 'boot'.  These are bugs that I was seeing several weeks
ago and you already fixed them once, but now they are back again.

I still think that a patch or two never got committed to cvs, but I
don't know which one(s).  Could you try applying your bsd.diff and
bsd_2.diff to current cvs sources and see if it works for you?

Here is what I do:

Apply the two patches to a clean cvs tree.
./  [because you patched an rmk file]
mkdir build
cd build
../configure && make
rm ata.mod
./grub-mkimage -d . -o grub2 *.mod

Then I use grub legacy to boot grub2 as the 'kernel'.

Do you see any problems with the above?  Does it work properly for

Thanks, Bean!
