RE: [K12OSN] New installation on an old Server



Title: Re: [K12OSN] New installation on an old Server

Sorry, I got busy again. Nope, no USB support. I can boot from CD though. It is ok, I got lucky last Friday and Yesterday. We had a meeting at my little office and I had just got the parts in for my personal PC which I had already loaded K12LTSP on before they got here. Got to show them the speed of the clients, which I had one with 256MB, and the other with 64MB to show there was no difference. Showed them the Teacher app and how it was comparable to our current Vision software. We also had a call with Ericom about using our older software and came up with the solution to just use TS Client and Rdesktop. We were going to be paying for Terminal Licenses with Ericom or Citrix or any other “solution”. So basically I just have to come up with the specs/cost of 2 new servers, one for the open lab and one for the library. After all the work I put into fixing that other one up, we are going to use it as a file server for Windows Updates ;-) . Hopefully we won’t need that too much longer. Thanks for the help on trying to get that Compaq working everyone.

You can boot from a CD. 

 

Does the server have a USB port?

Can you boot from a connected USB flash drive?

Well I’m on round three. I’m going with just the array this time, the HD isn’t bootable in this server ;-). It’s hard to get it to boot a CD sometimes. Anyways, I’m setting up the partitions manually again, if this doesn’t work I may try an earlier version. I’ve read people having no problems with fedora core 4. Is there a previous version of K12LTSP using FC5 or FC4? I’m not ready to give up quite yet!

Levi,

    The only other thing that I should have mentioned is to make sure that you make the /dev/hdb1 partition as bootable ;-)  Otherwise, your desciption sounds - as they say - sane...  and it sounds like it should go for you!

Good luck !!

Yes there is a custom settings button. I’ve got it reading the entire HD as /boot ext 3 and I’ve split the array into / ext3 and a swap. Does that sound correct? There is only one section now, Hard Drives, and there are no LVM. I’m tentative to continue without input because of the amount of time it takes me to get to this point again. Besides I have other work I can do while I wait for a reply. Thanks again.

Levi,

    I don't think that this is exactly what you want.  If you look closely, you will see that LVM is spanning both your array & the IDE drive ( /dev/hdb is your IDE hardrive and it is showing 2 partitions.  You would want it to only have a single partition, /dev/hdb1. Have another go at it and see if you can force the boot partition to consume the entire drive.  I don't have the interface in front of me right now, but I "think" you can do a custom partition setup...

HTH,
