So right away I noticed that tftpboot didn't contain the debian-live

just to be precise, the kernel and initrd should be in tftpboot, but
the other live/* stuff. i've fixed that for lb in git.
The pxelinux.cfg was a file, so I had to move it to
(since my pxe clients were complaining "cannot find config file").
fixed in git, thanks.
Thanks for fixing!
At this point I guessed that the kernel needed CONFIG_ROOT_NFS, so I
re-built the kernel, copied it to tftpboot, and added "root=/dev/nfs
nfsroot=192.168.202.187:/usr2/debian-live" to live.cfg - and I was
able to boot successfully.
this is using nfs boot options of the kernel in connection with
initramfs-tools, not the one of debian-live (see previous answer to
of your mails).
Sorry, not too familiar with debian-live.. are you saying these nfs
boot options are NOT necessary? How is it done with debian-live?
In the meantime, I'll try grabbing latest git and try again.
