11:51 joDoes FAI support incremental updates of the clients, i.e. run apt-get upgrade on each client? How are the clients maintained with FAI? What happens after the installation?
11:59 MrfailFAI softupda is a incremental update. If you only like to run apt-get update; ... upgrade, you can do it with a small script on your own. You also have to decide by yourself when to run such a script. Via cron, or only on a reboot, or oush from a central server? It's your decission how to do this, FAI will not force you to use a certain methed.

13:19 d_v_lHi folks. I have two NICs on my fai-clients. Both NICs are served by DHCP. Unfortunately when starting the fai-boot the wrong interface gets dhcp-ed. Since there are a lot of different servers, I cannot realy control, which interface asks at first for DHCP. Is there any workaround or solution for controlling this?

13:49 mcarvalhIn live.log upon booting my FAI client, I get the message "mount: Mounting unionfs on /root failed: No such device", even after compiling in UFS support
13:49 mcarvalhthis is with FAI version 3.2.4 on a Lenny server
13:51 mcarvalhDoes ufs support need to be built into the kernel that exists within my NFS root, or just in the kernel which I use to boot my client via PXE?
13:52 MrfaiAFAIK ufs is not unionfs
13:53 mcarvalhreally...ok
13:54 mcarvalhthat would explain it then, looks like i need to patch my kernel. I will try that. Thanks

19:07 mcarvalhCan't set permissions on mtab: Operation not permitted
19:08 MTare you sure that unionfs is working?
19:08 mcarvalhHowever, I can manually mount it if i call mount -n -o nolock...is this a bug in FAI 3.2.4?
19:08 MTnot a known one, at least
19:08 mcarvalhi was looking at http://layer-acht.org/fai-irc/fai.log.20070925.html, which looks like a similar problem mounting the config dir
19:08 MTdoes something like touch /bla work?
19:09 mcarvalhi can make directories files etc and mount my debian mirror from the fai client after it drops me to the shell, yes
siggg (~jean@tra78-5-88-172-128-32.fbx.proxad.net) joined #fai.
19:11 mcarvalhi imagine i can fix it by setting my mount options for task_mirror, but im not sure where to do so
19:12 MTit might be worth bringing this up on the fai mailinglist
19:12 MTjust in case you don't get immediate help here
19:12 MT(I'm on the leave, will be back online in 30mins or so)
19:12 mcarvalhok, not a problem, i might post tomorrow if Mrfai is on

19:58 mcarvalhfwiw, i had to add the option -n to romountopt in my nfsroot
19:59 mcarvalhso no /srv/fai/nfsroot/live/filesystem.dir/etc/init.d/rcS has the following line changed:
19:59 mcarvalhso now*
19:59 mcarvalhexport romountopt="-n -o async,noatime,nolock,ro,actimeo=1800"
20:01 MT_hmmm
20:01 MT_-n is already used for getting the config space
20:01 MT_so only the mirror is still affected
20:02 MT_ok, this is a bug
20:02 MT_mcarvalh, would you mind filing a bug report?
20:03 mcarvalhok, this will be my first :)
20:04 MT_say that -n must be added to the mount command in task_mirror
20:04 MT_just as is done in get-config-dir-nfs
20:04 MT_and tag it "patch"
20:04 mcarvalhis that the correct place i should add this option, or is there a more approprate place for it, (e.g something equivalent to get_config_dir_nfs)
20:04 mcarvalhwhere is task_mirror located?
20:04 MT_to me it seems to be most appropriate
20:04 MT_in subroutines-linux
20:05 MT_that is /usr/lib/fai/subroutines-linux
20:05 mcarvalhok, thanks
20:05 MT_in get-config-dir-nfs it says something like mount -n $romountopt
20:05 MT_in task_mirror that -n is simply missing :-)
20:06 MT_it was added to get-config-dir-nfs only very recently
20:06 MT_so just nobody had stumbled upon it yet ...
20:07 mcarvalhheh, glad to be the first

20:09 BarryAllen(im using the cvs fai-source branch)
20:09 MT_:-)
20:09 BarryAllenops, sorry :)
20:09 MT_yes, it is no longer there
20:09 BarryAllenMT_, where is it now?
20:09 MT_the kernel is now simply installed via apt
20:09 MT_thus you need to modify /etc/fai/NFSROOT
20:09 BarryAllennice :)
20:10 BarryAllentks MT_ !
20:10 MT_in case you need to do so, at all
20:27 mcarvalhhmm, so if i submit a bug report from my older etch box, it autofills the version of FAI as 3.1.8 in my report...can i just edit that line?
20:27 MT_yes, just do so
20:27 MT_The only essential lines are
20:27 stockholmMT_: you work on setup-storage again?
20:27 MT_Package: fai
20:27 MT_Version: 3.2.4
20:27 stockholmMT_: i was installing the newest version the other day
20:27 MT_Tags: patch
20:27 MT_( :-) )
20:27 stockholmand it did not work
20:28 MT_well, first I started using it myself
20:28 stockholmi fixed some obvious bugs on the way to get it to compile but there came more and more
20:28 MT_then I did some hacking
20:28 MT_which SVN version?
20:28 stockholmi am using it too
20:28 stockholmthat was head yesterday or the day before
20:28 MT_I fixed some bugs in 4871 just yesterday
20:28 MT_ah, ok :-)
20:28 MT_I had integrated the encryption thingy
20:29 MT_I think r4872 should be ok again
20:29 stockholmneat
20:29 MT_but in case there are still any errors, I'm ready to fix them here and now :-)
20:30 stockholmi could not reach you when i had the problems so i went back to a known good version
20:30 stockholmi will come back and try it again soon

20:32 MT_in case I don't respond more or less immediately, just drop me an email, be it PM or via the list
20:34 stockholmgreat, will do
20:34 stockholm"the new system" sounds like i could know what you mean. what is it?
20:35 MT_our group has moved to TU Darmstadt
20:35 MT_packed my SVN from Munich
20:35 MT_reworked the necessary bits
20:35 MT_upgrade to latest SVN-FAI
20:35 MT_and reinstalled :-)
20:35 stockholmok
20:35 stockholm:-)
20:36 stockholmso you moved house from munich to darmstadt, too?
20:36 MT_well, I had been sharing a flat back in in MUC, moved into a new flat here
20:37 MT_but moving those things took even longer than moving the system :-)
20:39 stockholmsure... then finding friends and stuff takes years
20:39 MT_well, currently I'm doing hardly anything else than working
20:41 stockholmgee. :-)
20:41 stockholmhow can i express negative preferencs regarding packages for a class?

20:42 stockholmhow can i say "if CLASS is defined, dont install PACKAGE"?
20:42 MT_at least with PACKAGES install
20:42 MT_that does work
20:42 MT_as long as the entries end up in the same list
20:42 MT_(install packages splits a some point)
20:42 MT_just say
20:42 stockholmlike a line PACKAGE- in the CLASS file in package_config ?

20:46 stockholmthat "PACKAGES install THE_CLASS_WHERE_YOU_DONT_WANT_IT" line

21:22 mcarvalhhow do i get it in there without manually chroot'ing into it and making the change?
21:23 MT_either, build new packages and install them manually

21:26 MT_so you'd better ping Mrfai tomorrow to get it done soon :-)
21:26 mcarvalhat least i can wedge the fix into my nfsroot to continue my testing
21:44 mcarvalhdoes the kernel name of the PXE boot kernel need to match the name of the kernel within the nfsroot?
21:45 MT_not the name, but the version
21:45 MT_you'll need to have the appropriate modules ready
21:45 mcarvalhfor example, my boot kernel (with unionfs and root_nfs compiled in) is named 2.6.22-fai, but the one in the nfsroot is 2.6.22-3-486...
21:46 mcarvalhand it seems to have a hard time finding modules since it refers to the wrong path now
21:46 MT_ok, yes
21:46 MT_you'll need to get your modules installed into the nfsroot
21:46 mcarvalhahh..do i just add the to /etc/fai/NFSROOT?
21:47 MT_if you have a proper Debian package, which is available via some mirror, yes
21:47 mcarvalhi made the package myself
