The Multiboot specification

This specification, created in 1995, describes a method of loading various multiboot kernels using a single compliant boot loader (such as GNU GRUB) on i386-based computers.

It is used by a variety of kernel images, such as the Hurd, Xen, or NetBSD kernels.

An example implementation of a Multiboot kernel is provided.

For an example implementation of a Multiboot loader, check GRUB Legacy (grub-legacy package), or GRUB 2 (grub-pc package, and others).

Package version:0.6.96-1.1


multiboot (0.6.96-1.1) unstable; urgency=low

  * Non-maintainer upload.
  * Fix "FTBFS in squeeze: rm: cannot remove
    `debian/multiboot/usr/share/info/dir': No such file or directory":
    "rm -f" so that the file gets removed whether it's created or not (depends
    on having install-info installed or not); thanks to Justus Winter for his
    debugging help (closes: #595876).
