Subject: Feature dnsmasq as TFTP server in the installation guide ?
today I installed debian via TFTP on a network where I was already running
dnsmasq, and it had never been so simple:
# cat <<__END__ > /etc/dnsmasq.d/tftp
# /etc/init.d/dnsmasq restart
# mkdir /var/tftp ; cd /var/tftp
# wget http://http.us.debian.org/debian/dists/wheezy/main/installer-amd64/current/images/netboot/gtk/netboot.tar.gz
# tar xvfz netboot.tar.gz
According to the Debian wiki, only the following other items need to be configured.
pxe-service=x86PC, "Install Linux", pxelinux
Nevertheless, it looks like pxe-service is not strictly necessary.
I wonder if it would be worth mentioning dnsmasq proeminently it in the
Installation Guide. It is a much easier setup than isc-dhcp-server or BOOTP
(is that still needed ?)
Have a nice day,
