It's a sight of beauty...
So here's what happened. I noticed that the error I posted about just
now was talking about trying to mount a filesystem but it wasn't
working. I also noticed it wasn't using the i386-3 directory when it
So I looked more closely at the DHCPD.conf file and found a mistake!
The line was in the second scope:
option root-path "192.168.3.254:/opt/ltsp/i386";
but it should have been:
option root-path "192.168.3.254:/opt/ltsp/i386-3";
I got this idea from reading through the email archives related to the
error's keywords and I found a posting by Jim McQuillan (Mr. Ltsp
) Copy your lts.conf file from /opt/ltsp/i386/etc to /opt/ltsp-4.2/i386
2) Add "/opt/ltsp-4.2/i386" to your /etc/exports file
3) run 'exportfs -ra' to update the nfs daemon
4) Modify your dhcpd.conf file as follows:
a) Change the 'filename' parameter to point to the new kernel,
it should be '/lts/126.96.36.199-ltsp-2/pxelinux.0' for PXE booting
and '/lts/vmlinuz-188.8.131.52-ltsp-2' for Etherboot booting
b) Change the root-path entry to point to '/opt/ltsp-4.2/i386'
5) Restart dhcpd
I realized it was an analogous situation so I did that exportfs -ra
command, then hunted around in dhcpd for that root path and found it
Changed, restarted and they both boot!!!!!
I must thank you all so very much. I would have given up a long time
ago without everyone's help.
