It is wrong for us to keep the publicly available Owl-current tree in a broken state for longer than necessary. Even an untested fix is better than no fix at all. I tried to find that issue with '-' in the code myself, but failed (in the time I spent so far). However, I found that there's some support for symlinks. syslinux-4.04/core/fs/fs.c has: /* Symlink hard limits */ #define MAX_SYMLINK_CNT 20 #define MAX_SYMLINK_BUF 4096 and these are used in searchdir(). Yet you said symlinks didn't work? They certainly produce a different kind of error for me, as I mentioned, so there's probably in fact something wrong with them. Is this not the right place in the code to look at? Or is something else involved (such as to actually read the kernel image), where support for symlinks is missing and an issue with '-' exists? searchdir() is invoked from ui.inc via: pm_call pm_searchdir So I think it is relevant, but perhaps something else is as well. Thanks, Alexander
