Good news :)
With syslinux-6.01-pre5 all things tested seems to work! Finally!
cdrom (ISOLINUX): OK disk (SYSLINUX [VFAT]): OK disk (SYSLINUX [EXT4]): OK disk (ISOHYBRID-MBR): OK network (PXELINUX): OK
Also tested, all other menu items, reboot, hdt, memtest, etc...
Tests was made under qemu-1.5.1.
PS: Since syslinux 6 supports EFI, maybe in a future (2013.08 or 2013.09), if all things work, I am going to replace gummiboot with syslinux.
Syslinux does not yet support chainloading other efi binaries like the UEFI Shell included in the iso. The chain.c32 is built in case of efi64 or efi32, but is actually useless since the underlying code works only in bios. I suggest not moving over to syslinux-efi until it supports chainloading. BTW syslinux 6.01 is in [testing] if anyone wants to test it.
I guess , in this context in more a chainexecuting than chainloading. Right?
In any way, syslinux-6.01 still broken for PXE using HTTP [#1] as I said in previous emails.
I suggested to Tobias, in keeping our rock solid syslinux-4.06 package in repos, renamed to something like syslinux4 or syslinux-legacy, until syslinux-6 fixes this issue. So syslinux-6 can be moved out of [testing].
When syslinux-6 fixes PXE HTTP booting, I will start looking in syslinux-6.xx for EFI boot, and only if all things works in EFI will be implemented for archiso.
