Would be cool to mention linux, because "it somewhat resembles to boot a Multiboot-compliant OS" according to the grub manual: (talk) 12:31, 4 December 2012 (UTC)

the article states now that it is multiboot-compliant, but if it only resembles then I think we need to correct the article. --Putputi (talk) 17:37, 4 June 2017 (UTC)
I've corrected it by removing it - linux doesn't follow the multibopot specification and the source that is referenced does not list it, either. (talk) 11:57, 27 August 2017 (UTC)
PS: the grub manual doesn't say the linux kernel resembles a multiboot compliant OS, either, it says the way to boot it with grub resembles booting a multiboot kernel. (talk) 11:59, 27 August 2017 (UTC)


Is there any multibootloader specification?.--Lagoset (talk) 08:41, 25 April 2015 (UTC)

Well, the Multiboot Specification v0.6.96 contains all that's required for creating a compliant boot loader. Is that what you've asked about? — Dsimic (talk | contribs) 12:22, 19 May 2015 (UTC)
