Description

I found http://wiki.amahi.org/index.php/Netboot which documents how to install amahi-netboot on fedora. The fedora line is "yum -y install amahi-netboot" but when I try on ubuntu "sudo apt-get install amahi-netboot" it returns "E: Unable to locate package amahi-netboot".

There are a few PXE images available on the amahi app area that identify themselves as in "alpha" phase for Ubuntu. I don't know if access to beta apps would also include alpha apps, but my Ubuntu server did install the "Clonezilla for Amahi" app without a problem. Of course, without amahi-netboot, it doesn't do anything.

So either I'm missing how to install amahi-netboot on Ubuntu, or it isn't available yet on Ubuntu. If it isn't available, perhaps a notation should be made on the apps that require it that they will not yet run on Ubuntu (which might be implied by the Alpha status, but perhaps could be stated more expressly).

Thanks!

This feature is still being worked and is not available for Ubuntu per the wiki guidance.

http://bugs.amahi.org/issues/929

As you have noticed in the forums, we are testing it. This is a duplicate bug submission, but we will keep it open as it reminds us about the wiki guidance.

There are no Ubuntu applications available LIVE yet for using netboot. Once testing is complete, we will begin looking at those. I will give you access to help test, so please post your results in the forums.
