Re: [K12OSN] Fedora 9 Live LTSP Server, Beta 1

thank you for the patch it works ! :-)

i also generated an image for it:
wraplinux -E -i initrd.ltsp -p "rw selinux=0 verbose noquiet sysrq=1" -o wrap.ltsp vmlinuz.ltsp

i have old etherboot chips on r8139 NIC so i also changed:

     # Etherboot NBI (older clients)
     elsif substring (option vendor-class-identifier, 0, 9) = "Etherboot"
         filename      "/ltsp/i386/wrap.ltsp";
        #filename      "/ltsp/i386/wraplinux-nbi.ltsp";

it is etherboot. (rtl8139 + etherboot chip i got from disklessworkstation)

what can i do to help in this ?

Any idea what version of Etherboot?  What is its vendor-class-identifier?

I just committed the attached to ltsp-trunk.  This should work on anything reporting itself as "Etherboot-5.4" in the DHCP request.  If your Etherboot is older though, it becomes a bit difficult to handle automatically.  This is because older Etherboot reported itself as "Etherboot", where some versions supported only NBI while others were capable of ELF.

I tried mknbi-linux just now and the resulting NBI seems to just fail. I cannot prioritize looking further at NBI given how old it is.  If somebody else figures out a way to improve this situation for older Etherboot I'm willing to review patches.

Anyhow, give this a try.
