12:42 lazyb0yand a muffin for free(tea excluded)
12:43 lazyb0ystockholm: ok, i let Mrfai do the broing stuff
12:43 lazyb0ystockholm: the last error you posted here I asked about
12:43 Mrfaido not trust support that are not officially FAI certified :-)
12:43 stockholmthat was like two days ago, right?
12:43 lazyb0yhmm, yes...maybe...
12:44 stockholmi solved that and currently try to get to the management console of my test-install machine to find out its mac address
12:44 lazyb0ywhatever, we also provide support for newer problems ...
12:44 Mrfaitcpdump -qte port bootpc
12:44 Mrfaithis will shou you the MAC addresses
12:46 stockholmyes, i could do that, too
12:46 stockholmcan i first limit what interface tries to pxe boot?
12:47 Mrfaithis must be done by your BIOS
12:47 stockholmi know
12:48 Mrfaiso, If you know, what's the real questions?
12:48 stockholmit was not a question at all. i tell you guys what i am doing
12:49 Mrfaiok
12:50 lazyb0ybut we want questions, and problems! :)
12:53 stockholmok, so how do i create the nfsroot?
12:53 stockholmi forgot that command again
12:53 lazyb0yMrfai: how do you want the XENU sample class? patch against original configspace? single files? svn branch?
12:53 stockholmit does not start with fai-
12:53 oz_stockholm: make-fai-nfsroot :)
12:53 lazyb0ymake-fai-nfsroot
12:54 stockholmlazyb0y: i want it in beta5!
12:54 lazyb0ystockholm: XENU?
12:54 lazyb0ygive me you mail address...
12:55 lazyb0y(i don't know how long Mrfai needs to review it and put it into the trunk)
12:55 stockholmoh, i stll need to send you the corrected NFSROOT config file i guess
12:56 stockholmlazyb0y: send it to  :-)
Nick change: stockholm -> EarlOfFai
12:58 EarlOfFaicome to me for real high level fai support
12:58 lazyb0yfor sure, this service is not conatined in the standard support contract
Nick change: EarlOfFai -> stockholm
13:04 juri_mrfai: how do i get in on this support racket^Wcontracting gig? :P
13:04 lazyb0yso high on crack that theres not much else to do :)
13:05 lazyb0yjuri_: it involves carying big boxes of cach to Mrfai
13:05 lazyb0yargh... too much crack, also...
13:05 lazyb0ybetter carry big boxes of cash...
13:05 juri_fine with me. as long as people carry bigger boxes of cash to me. :P
13:06 lazyb0yjuri_: that's not part of the contracts in Mrfai fai's business partner programme
13:06 juri_oh. well then. :)
13:07 lazyb0yin my "fai advanced business partner program" you get the promise of getting very big boxes back!
13:07 juri_hmm.. paying big boxes of cash for promises... did i drop into #microsoft? :P
13:08 lazyb0yah no, it's not just simple promises... it's much more...
13:08 lazyb0ystockholm: let me know if the XENU stuff works for you.
13:08 juri_patent indemification? oooh! oooh! send me a newsletter!
13:09 lazyb0ystockholm: but take care - I did not test it with netinstalls that way, and currently, I did not yet get netinstalls working with the 3.2 beta versions. dirinstall works fine, though, also combined with xen-tools
13:09 lazyb0yjuri_: I know what you do with your emails... gr :(
13:10 stockholmlazyb0y: will do
13:11 lazyb0yerm, what's the current newest version of 3.2 beta?
13:11 stockholmbeta4
13:11 stockholmi think
13:11 stockholmMrfai: does not answer, his support is not up to enterprise standards i notice
13:12 lazyb0ystockholm: and, can I have that fixed NFSROOT file, please?
13:12 lazyb0yI said it the whole time... he doesn't even deliver promises!!!
13:17 stockholmlazyb0y: yes...
13:18 stockholm
13:18 stockholmlazyb0y: note the general requirement of unionfs-modules-2.6-486
13:18 stockholmthat might be better added to the arch dependent section too
Action: lazyb0y is still figuring out the real diffs between the empty lines and comments...

14:11 lazyb0yI also find it with which and locate...
14:11 lazyb0yyour locate db might not be up to date
14:11 stockholmlazyb0y: what i pasted means that it is not in the fai-server package at all
14:13 lazyb0yhmm, wait, I am still at beta3, let me see...
14:13 lazyb0yaprt from that; yes, I realized that. but it was different for me...

16:19 Mrfainow add initrd=... into the pxelinux.cfg
16:19 stockholmback when we talked about pxeboot and beta4 you said templates were a workaround. does that ring a bell?
16:19 stockholmah
16:20 Mrfaiyep
16:20 Mrfaiadd this to the pxelinux.cfg template: initrd=initrd.img-2.6.18-4-486  
16:20 stockholmcan you give an example line for pxelinux.cfg .... yes, exacty except amd64
16:20 Mrfaiyep
16:21 Mrfaihold on......
16:21 stockholmand... since /etc/tftp/fai is generated by fai-server... i think it should not be removed when removing /upgrading the package
16:21 stockholmi think that happend to me.
16:21 stockholmthat or my college removed it
16:22 Mrfaiplease file a bug report. I will not scan the irclog later

16:25 stockholma debian bug report or does have fai a seperate bug tracker?
16:25 Mrfaiyep, name it inst.tmpl for example
16:25 Mrfaithen
16:26 Mrfaifai-chboot -vc inst your_hostname
16:27 Mrfaiif your_hostname can be reswolved with DNS (or /etc/hosts) then fai-chboot will do the rest
16:31 stockholmis tmpl the file ending it needs to have to be picked up?
16:32 stockholmor could i also call it burp.template?

17:17 bluemoonoder was aehnliches
BarryAllen ( left irc: Quit: Saindo
17:19 Mrfaija. aber ich weiss nicht genau was ein vendor class sein soll. Ich vermute mal
17:19 Mrfaidu willst dmidecode nutzen um einen Vendor zu erkennen und dann eine Klasse definieren.
17:19 MrfaiDa sollte bald ein schoenes Beispile im wiki stehen. Habe heute mit jemandem geredet, der dies implementiert hat.
17:20 bluemoonne, ich brauche das, um eine ip vom dhcp zu bekommen
17:20 bluemoonum nicht jede mac einzutragen
17:21 Mrfaiaha, vendor string im dhcp meinst du.
17:21 bluemoonjepp
17:21 bluemoonkann auch eine andere option sein
17:21 bluemoonirgendwas was mein dhcp verwerten kann
17:22 Mrfaiich denke das sollte gehen. schau dir mal die dhclient.conf in der nfsroot an
17:22 Mrfaiund dann noch dhclient-fai-script an
17:22 bluemoonaber zu der zeit hat er ja noch kein root
17:22 Mrfaidoch
17:22 bluemoonah
17:23 Mrfaiund in zukunft haben wir auch eine initrd, da koennen wir noch mehr drin machen
17:23 bluemoonok, dann guck ich mal da weiter
17:23 Mrfaies gibt 3 dhcp anfragen waehrend FAI bootet;
17:23 Mrfai1. PXE von der Netzwerkkarte
17:23 Mrfai2. dhcp vom kernel
17:23 Mrfai3. dhcp von dhclient-fai-script
17:24 bluemoongenau, und ich brauch es bei der 2.
17:24 Mrfaiwir koennen natuerlich nur in die 3 eingreifen
17:24 Mrfaibei der 2. geht es vielleicht in zukunft, wenn wir die initrd haben.
17:24 MrfaiIst schon im fai 3.2beta4 enthalten
17:25 bluemoonalso eine kernel-boot-option dafuer gibts dann wohl nicht
17:25 bluemoonich hatte was von dhcpClass gefunden
17:25 bluemoondas scheint aber was fedoralastiges zu sein
