[ipxe-devel] [gPXE-devel] [gPXE] Help with use-cached

Thanks for the git help.  I was able to do the test properly this time
(and without any build errors!)  The commit that introduced the behavior
I noted is: 9e9f021ba78ffdcb5a2b6a120400a9c2166eef03.

I'm running gcc-4.5-4.2 on openSuSE 11.3.  The git revision for that
error is whatever is current now.  After issuing a "git clone
git://git.ipxe.org/ipxe.git" that is the error that I get when I try to
"make bin/undionly.kkpxe" in the src directory.

Sorry about the 1.0.1 confusion.  The problem there is that the 1.0.1
release postdates the time that iPXE and gPXE development diverged.  You
work around this using:

  git remote add legacy git://git.ipxe.org/mirror/gpxe.git
  git fetch legacy --tags

That will give you a v1.0.1 tag to use as a starting point for

I'm puzzled by that.  What gcc version are you using?

Also, which git revision are you on when you get this exact error
(There have been changes to hermon.c, so line 2609 doesn't mean much
knowing which revision we're talking about.)

Since the Hermon driver is not going to be relevant to what you're
for, you can safely delete src/drivers/infiniband/hermon.c before
attempting to 
build.  That will allow you to try the bisection again, this time with
v1.0.1 tag present and without worrying about build failures.
