Bug#826844: netcfg ignoring BOOTF= in kernel cmdline

Hi Philipp,

Thanks for your response. Yeah I actually figured that out after looking looking at the netcfg code and seeing the "01-" being purposefully excluded from the address capture. So then I looked up the specification for PXELINUX and saw the hardware type at the start.

So, I've just hardcoded (eww) a "01-" before the ${netX/mac} in the iPXE config.

Thanks for the answer! And sorry for not updating this sooner. This can probably be closed as a non-issue, but not sure if it's worth while adding a comment to the code, or something.

BOOTIF= is generated by PXELINUX, which also prepends a hardware type.
(That's its defined interface.)

Completely from memory you might want to try 01-0c-c4-7a-8e-ad-4a for
