kloader version 2.1 released with live dvd
A new release from Mega Man -
Kernelloader 2.1 and a Live DVD:
2 - Disable DVD access if loading of eromdrvloader.irx failed.
3 - Added DNS client which supports TCP connections only.
4 - Added support for downloading files from internet (HTTP).
5 Instead of a file name a URL can be specified (for example:
6 http://www.server.com/filename). The DNS server need to be
7 configured in the net options menu.
8 - Added patch for libsd which enables USB support when using
9 sound modules from RTE with newer slim PSTwo (v15). This patch
10 may not be required, because it is solved by enabling USB
11 from EE instead of IOP side. So the patch is by default disabled.
12 - Read DVD region from NVM. This should work at least with
13 SCPH-77004. eromdrvloader.irx error should be fixed (I can't
14 test this).
15 - Moved USB initialisation from EE to IOP CPU. This makes USB more
16 stable on slim PSTwo.
17 - Fixed bug in SBIOS code for MC. The bug caused system to hang
18 if the XMCMAN and XMCSERV modules are used or on heavy USB usage
19 on slim PSTwo.
20 - Fixed bug in SBIOS code for PAD. The bug caused system to hang
21 suddenly (mostly at startup) if XPADMAN is used.
22 - By default the new modules are used on slim PSTwo. This makes USB
23 more stable. Sometimes there are wrong data written to USB memory
24 devices on slim PSTwo.
25 - Add ability to reload modules in kernelloader (to activate a changed
26 network configuration).
27 - Add SBIOS call for reading burned DVD video discs. This allows to
28 run live Linux DVDs. A patched Linux kernel is required to use the
29 new SBIOS call (vmlinux_fat_and_slim_v4.gz).
30 - Fixed detection of wrong console type at startup if no configuration
31 was loaded from memory card.
