10:08 samiI need some serious help. I just made an ubuntu install CD for an unattended install with my own repository. When i boot it everthing works fine until it tries to verify the "Release" file.
10:08 samiAnyone got clue?
10:25 siretartsami: does your question relate to FAI in any way?
10:25 siretartallee_: hey there, did you have the chance to test the packages from the PPA?
10:26 allee_siretart: hi,  I did not test with the PPA3 pkg yet, but worked with localy built pkg that should be identical
10:27 allee_siretart: but all this is only PXE with  FAIBASE DHCPC class  (i.e. the *) branch in 50-classes
10:29 siretartallee_: in that case I'd like to have it uploaded to hardy, to get wider testing. it is definitly an improvment compared what we have there. OK?
10:29 allee_siretart: yes.  Please upload
10:48 siretartallee_: uploaded

19:56 sobersabreok.
20:03 sobersabreI ran make-fai-nfsroot -v
20:03 sobersabreit seems to have install everything without errors.
20:03 sobersabrewhen I booted a machine with this config:
20:03 sobersabrekernel vmlinuz-2.6.18-6-686
20:04 sobersabreappend initrd=initrd.img-2.6.18-6-686 ip=dhcp root=/dev/nfs nfsroot=/srv/fai    /nfsroot,v3,tcp,intr FAI_FLAGS=verbose,sshd,createvt FAI_ACTION=install
20:04 sobersabrei GOT:
20:04 sobersabreVFS: Cannot open root device "nfs" or unknown-block(0.255)
20:04 sobersabrePlease append a correct "root=" boot option
20:05 sobersabre(and of course the Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs.
20:05 sobersabre)
20:06 sobersabrenfsroot=/srv/fai/nfsroot it is.
20:06 sobersabreso, it seems I am using a wrong kernel.
20:06 sobersabrewhat kernel shall I use ?

istaz ( left irc: Read error: Connection reset by peer
20:11 istaz_sobersabre: which booting method are you using?
20:11 sobersabrehmm... as far as I know my dhcp server is sending some file (PXE)
20:11 sobersabrehave I answered your question ?
20:12 istaz_yes
20:13 istaz_sobersabre: try putting the ip=dhcp after
20:14 sobersabreistaz_: after what ?
20:14 sobersabreafter root= ?
20:14 istaz_after the  the root=
20:14 sobersabreok... trying.
20:16 sobersabrewaiting for the machine to boot....
20:17 sobersabreistaz_: is it possible I should use another kernel ?
20:17 sobersabrehmmm
20:17 sobersabreI am getting:
20:18 sobersabreshort read: 0< 28
20:19 sobersabreIT fails to mount
20:20 sobersabreI can mount..
20:20 sobersabreand there's this "live" folder.
20:20 sobersabreI think this is what's missing.
20:21 istaz_you can mount it with nfsmount ?
20:21 istaz_22:03 < sobersabre> nfsroot=/srv/fai/nfsroot it is.
20:21 istaz_is it me or is it missing the server name?
20:21 sobersabreistaz_: this is what was written:
20:22 sobersabrenfsroot=/src/fai/nfsroot
20:22 sobersabrebefore that it had nfs=/dev/nfs
20:22 istaz_here I have : kernel /boot/vmlinuz root=/dev/nfs boot=live FAI_FLAGS="verbose,createvt" FAI_ACTION=install ip=dhcp rw nfsroot=
20:23 istaz_but I'm booting from a CD
20:24 sobersabreI am trying your idea now...
20:25 sobersabreI mean to put ip=dhcp in the default fai-chboot -iFv hostname
20:27 sobersabrehmm,
20:27 sobersabrenow, next error:
20:27 sobersabreIt gets to mount nfs.
20:27 sobersabreand then:
20:27 sobersabreWarning: unable to open an initial console.
20:27 sobersabreand then:
20:28 sobersabreKernel panic - not syncing: No init found. Try passing init= option to kernel
20:28 sobersabreinstall server sees in the log "authenticated mount request"
20:29 sobersabrehell!
20:33 istaz_strange
20:34 istaz_what's your complete line?
20:35 sobersabreI had FAI_FLAGS=verbose,sshd,createvt
20:35 sobersabreI changed it to "verbose,sshd,createvt"
20:35 sobersabreno effect.
20:36 sobersabreI am rerunning the make-fai-nfsroot -v
20:36 sobersabreit seems to be ok.
20:38 sobersabrebase system installed successfully
20:39 sobersabreI also got:
20:39 sobersabre/sys/class/net/ is not available, persistent interface names not saved.
20:39 sobersabreA chroot environment has been detected, udev not started.
20:39 sobersabreError, finally:
20:39 sobersabreERROR: live-initramfs was not installed inside the nfsroot.
20:41 istaz_it doesn't say why?
20:41 sobersabreistaz_: ?
20:41 istaz_sobersabre: why didn't it install the live-initramfs
20:42 sobersabreI have no idea
20:42 sobersabrewhere can I make it to install it ?
20:44 sobersabreI added it to every package group.
20:44 istaz_sobersabre: do you have have a initrd.img-2.6.18-6-686 in your nfsroot ?
20:45 istaz_sobersabre: added what?
20:46 sobersabreI have initrds
20:46 sobersabredo you think I should use them ?
20:47 istaz_live-initramfs should be in your /etc/fai/NFSROOT
20:47 sobersabreistaz_: where exactly ?
20:47 sobersabreI have it in:
20:47 sobersabrePACKAGES
20:48 istaz_sobersabre:  well if yo use a initrd which doesn't exist it's normal that it doesn't work
20:48 sobersabrePACKAGES aptitude
20:48 istaz_ok then it's right
20:48 sobersabreno, still not right, since it doesn't work.
20:49 istaz_sobersabre: no I mean your live-initramfs it's in the right place in your /etc/fai/NFSROOT
20:49 sobersabreistaz_: where is it in your /etc/fai/NFSROOT ?
20:51 istaz_pretty much the same place, I use the default file
20:53 istaz_sobersabre: where is it doesn't really matter. it's juste a list of packages to install, the order isn't important. It just shouldn't be before a PACKAGES remove
20:54 sobersabreI have it.
20:55 istaz_then the problem is not here
20:56 sobersabreI don't see it in I: list
20:56 sobersabreI mean inside the "base system"
20:56 sobersabreshould it be there ?
20:57 istaz_I don't know
20:59 sobersabrecan you paste the line in which this package is listed in your /etc/fai/NFSROOT ?
20:59 sobersabreand what kernel package do you use ?
20:59 sobersabreI have this one:
20:59 sobersabrelinux-image-2.6
21:00 sobersabrehell.
21:01 sobersabre1st of April is over.
21:01 sobersabreistaz_: anyway, so ... can you paste ?
21:01 sobersabre2 things: the line with kernel package name
21:01 sobersabreand the line with live-initramfs
