DragonFly kernel List (threaded) for 2004-08
Re: using pxeboot
The pxeboot we generate is entirely untested. I don't know if
that has anything to do with your problem, though.
What I recommend is that you first make sure your box's
tftpd is working. tftpd is usually started from inetd and inetd
is not started by default. If you cannot tftp a file from your
tftp server then that has to be fixed before anything else.
Next, I would just use a simple filename, e.g.:
And place both pxeboot and the kernel you wish to boot in your tftp
I would leave the tftp directory at its default chroot, "/tftpboot",
and copy the necessary files into that directory.
:Is boot/pxeboot from the installer disk ready
:to use? in my dhcpd.conf I'm using
:while making the cdrom the tftpd root
:I've also tried
:while making the cdrom/boot the tftpd root
:I even tried copying the cdrom to disk and
:adding a symlink "pxeroot -> ." in the top
:directory because pxeboot seems to look for
:that as its root.
:my logs show boot/pxeroot gets downloaded,
:I think it's running but gets stuck (can't
:load kernel) and it does not request files
:from the tftpd. :-\
