Re: Probs with netboot/NFS - SOLVED



Fantastic!

Your bit of advice wasn't the only thing I needed to change. I needed to also change:

* Recompile kernel without cramfs or ramdisk support and include automounter support, boot with nfs filesystem, and a couple other options enabled which was pretty important! * Use a different command for mknbi-linux - "mknbi-linux -x -i kernel -d kernel -k bzImage -o bootImage.nbi -a nfsroot=192.168.1.2:/tftpboot/192.168.1.18" (I changed the location where the files are to be stored to /tftpboot/192.168.1.18)
* A couple others that I can't recall.

Hopefully the above advice will help other people browsing archives :)

Thanks very much for your help again.

Hi!


Hello all,

Am trying to boot a diskless client with the following spec:

And the messages found in the bootup list that I think are important are:

=================================
Kernel command line: auto rw root=/dev/nfs nfsroot=/nfsroot ip=192.168.1.18:192.168.1.2:192.168.1.1:255.255.255.0:


Yep... the ip= parameter tells the kernel how to configure the network
device, but you have to repeat the NFS server IP in the nfsroot= parameter;
this ought to work:

auto rw root=/dev/nfs nfsroot=192.168.1.2:/nfsroot ip=...


HTH,

Jan
