Description

Need amahi-netboot built for Fedora 23 & 24.

Presume the setup will be the same as Fedora 21.

Might be able to use the Fedora 21 RPM in the Fedora 23 & 24 repos?

History

#1 Updated by bigfoot65 about 3 years ago

Updated MemTest: http://www.memtest.org/download/5.01/memtest86+-5.01.zip

I don't believe the following files are needed:

boot.msg
f2
logo.16
menu.c32
other.conf
vmlinuz
miniroot.gz

The following will need to be added for the respective Amahi OS (from syslinux package):
vesamenu.c32,
ldlinux.c32,
libcom32.c32,
libutil.c32

Will need to change /var/lib/tftpboot/pxelinux.cfg/default to read:
default vesamenu.c32

See http://v02.13.sl.pt for reference.

I have not tried this yet, but should work from what I have read.

Been working with amahi-netboot quite a bit. I can get it to boot, but the Clonezilla and gParted apps seem to hang. I have tried modified versions by updating syslinux files and such, but still not working correctly.

Not sure if it's the amahi-netboot or the apps themselves.

Will continue to work as time permits unless someone from the community can make progress.

Can you post logs with details, like errors, etc.

#4 Updated by bigfoot65 about 3 years ago

There are no logs unfortunately once it netboots to the apps.

I did see an error about Kernel compatibility with network card. Not sure, but gonna try a different set up following this guidance:
