Re: Help neeed with the 'diskless' package
One more usefull thing that I just found out :
The client-customized directories are well mounted if the NFS root file
system is mounted read-only
However, if the NFS root file system is mounted read-write (this is my
case thanks to my SYSLINUX/PXE boot file), then the customized
directories are not mounted as expected (as described below).
Any idea why this is ? Is this a 'diskless' bug ?

I've installed a diskless client using the 'diskless' package of
Debian sarge (stable).
I successfully managed to start my diskless client (through PXE and
recompiled kernel with appropriate options).The root file system is
mounted as expected by the client though NFS. On my server, I did not
chage the defaults proposed by both commands 'diskless-newimage' and
'diskless-newhost' at installation time:
- the root file system for myclient to NFS mount is :
- the customized '/etc' '/tmp' and '/var' directories for my diskless
client (with IP adress being 10.1.0.4) are stored in :
However, during the client boot, the cutomized directories (
/var/lib/diskless/default/10.1.0.4/tmp are not mounted as /etc, /var,
/tmp). I believe they should.
What did I miss ? I cannot see which script does the mouting of those
customized directories ?
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
