I have also seen this issue but chalked it up to user error. (version
1.98-1ubuntu7) I watched wireshark traces show 3 pkts and stop. This was
from a Xen domU so I suspected a Xen problem at the time and gave up and
went to Xen's pv-grub instead that has a built-in tftp client.

Where can I retrieve a Grub2 branch that resolves this issue? An Ubuntu
package would be nice, but I'll take anything that builds.



I assumed user error on my part as well, until I saw someone else complain here...

You can checkout the newreloc branch from bazaar with the following command:

bzr branch

I did the following to build and test it last night:

./grub-mkimage --directory=grub-core -O i386-pc --output=core.img --prefix="(pxe)/boot/grub" pxe pxecmd
cat grub-core/pxeboot.img grub-core/core.img > grub-core/grub2pxe
cp grub-core/*.mod /var/lib/tftpboot/boot/grub/
cp grub-core/*.lst /var/lib/tftpboot/boot/grub/
cp grub-core/grub2pxe /var/lib/tftpboot/boot/grub/

Your target directories will surely vary :)
