Re: [K12OSN] Trouble with PXE Boot; Fedora 17



If by EL you mean RHEL, then it's just too expensive for me (a one-person operation). If you mean SL (scientific linux), then last I checked it runs a much older version of gcc than I can accept. Fedora always keeps up with the latest and greatest. This is really ironic - a "scientific" OS falls way behind wrt compiler updates. Also, the upgrades are not frequent enough (based on what little I know about it), so even if a newer version becomes available today, I'd have to wait much longer for the next update. Finally, I am by NO means even at the entry level when it comes to OS stuff - I really just want to focus on my work using something I feel very comfortable with by now (because of the regular updates and improvements)

BTW, I installed the i386 version of vmlinuz and initrd.img, and the zero client passed that test; moved on to the next stage - it apparently wants more "stuff" from the installation package to get started (but I haven't figured out how I can dump the terminal output to know what exactly is going on at each stage). So, I'm still stuck and the saga continues :)

thanks

I would have really preferred to use something like LTSP but unfortunately it doesn't support fedora 17 (the client side stops at fedora 14, which is an unacceptable option for me).

The 32-bit version of F17 is unfortunately not acceptable for what I do (and use), so I can't change the ecosystem of my workstation. The only real solution for me is something that would allow me to connect my 32-bit zero client to my 64-bit OS, but I don't know if/how it's possible (perhaps some sort of a compatibility software or something).
