Re: [K12OSN] Logon stuck


We had this exact problem with our lab when we were first setting it up. It ended up being that our server and client were running with different duplexes. The server was at full duplex and the client was at half duplex. You can force the duplex with mii-tool. Give it a try and see what happens.

I am trying to get a workstation hooked up. It is a P-166 and it gets on
to the DHCP part. Where it gets stuck is the Mounting Root Filesystem
which from the help files I find:
#  Upto this point, the root filesystem has been a ram disk. Now, the
/linuxrc script will mount a new root filesystem via NFS. The directory
that is exported from the server is typlically  /opt/ltsp/i386. It can't
just mount the new filesystem as /. It must first mount it as /mnt.
Then, it will do a  pivot_root. pivot_root will swap the current root
filesystem for a new filesystem. When it completes, the NFS filesystem
will be mounted on /, and the old root filesystem will be mounted on

It can't get past this point. I did edit the lts.conf file to include a
serial mouse... but I don't that this is the error...

Anyone got a quick fix?
