    FOG & LTSP

    Hi guys,

    I'm running FOG at the moment for deploying win 7, works a treat but theres one or two things I've been playing with over the last couple of days that I'd like to fix.

    A) I'm trying to boot a Fedora Live ISO from the FOG Boot Menu, gets so far and stops me saying "Missing Operating System"

    B) I'm also building an LTSP Server and my main aim with this one is to have an entry on the Fog Menu so when I select LTSP it'll start booting live from an LTSP server (hosted on a different server)

    Below is what I've put in the defaults file under pxelinux.cfg for Fedora.

    LABEL Fedora 18 Live
    kernel memdisk
    append iso root=/dev/ram0 initrd=/fog/FED18/Fedora-18-x86_64-Live-XFCE.iso
    MENU LABEL Fedora 18 Live Image
    TEXT HELP
    Linux Fedora 18
    ENDTEXT


    And here is what I've got for LTSP:
    LABEL Linux Terminal Server Boot
    KERNEL memdisk
    append tftp:/192.168.24.8/ltsp/i386/vmlinuz initrd=tftp:/192.168.24.8/ltsp/i386/initrd.img ro quiet splash

    Neither of them seem to be working properly, does anyone have any ideas ? I'm sure I've done the config all wrong!!


    Thanks in Advance!!!

    I am sure you have figured this out by now or given up. However if you are still having an issue try the following

    Code:
    LABEL Linux Terminal Server Boot
    KERNEL linux.c32 
    append tftp:/192.168.24.8/ltsp/i386/vmlinuz initrd=tftp:/192.168.24.8/ltsp/i386/initrd.img ro quiet splash
    The above code assumes 2 things.
    1. You have downloaded linux.c32 from the syslinux package (I use the one from 5.01)
    2. You have extracted linux.c32 to the root of your tftp directory on your fog server (Usually /tftpboot)

    Now there are many other factors here, but let me know how it goes.

    As for the "Live Disk" that process is much more involved. With a disk of that size it is not wise to use memdisk to boot it. You would be much better off using an NFS share with the contents extracted. There are many post on how to do this especially for Ubuntu. However if you would prefer to memdisk the iso you should be using apache to assist you with this (load times are 5 -10x quicker).
