====== Etherboot/gPXE Wiki ====== ==== Etherboot.org downtime ==== Our main website was down for a few days because of hardware issues. We apologize for the inconvenience this has caused. We will be restoring more services as soon as we can, and thank you for your support and patience as we work to get this back up. In the meantime: * The gpxe@etherboot.org and gpxe-devel@etherboot.org mailing lists are up, and discussion is welcome. * Our IRC channel #etherboot on irc.freenode.net is also available. Now that our main website is back up, we will next turn our attention to getting rom-o-matic.net functional. Thanks again your patience and understanding as we restore services. --- //[[mdc@etherboot.org|Marty Connor]] 2011/01/30// ---- {{ nic.jpeg?237x222|A network card}} gPXE is an open source (GPL) network bootloader. It provides a direct replacement for proprietary PXE ROMs, with many extra features such as DNS, HTTP, iSCSI, etc. Take a look at our [[:screenshots|Screenshots]] page and the [[:howtos|HowTo Guides]] for some ideas of what we can do, and grab the code from our [[:download|Download]] page. gPXE evolved from Etherboot, and is maintained by the Etherboot project. Here you will find various information about the Etherboot Project, and a repository of useful contributions from people who use Etherboot and gPXE. We hope you find this information useful. We are always looking for new people to help us improve our projects. We need people who can program, write/edit documentation, update websites, and provide help on our [[https://lists.sourceforge.net/lists/listinfo/etherboot-discuss|Etherboot-Discuss]] and [[https://lists.sourceforge.net/lists/listinfo/etherboot-developers|Etherboot-Developers]] mailing lists and our IRC channel, #etherboot on irc.freenode.net. Please join us, and become part of a great Open Source project! --- //The Etherboot Project Community// --- ===== News and Announcements ===== {{ :wiki:user:gpxe_logo.png?nolink&140|gPXE logo}} ==== gPXE-1.0.1 released ==== The Etherboot project is please to announce the release of gPXE-1.0.1 * Prebuilt binaries: [[http://rom-o-matic.net/gpxe/gpxe-1.0.1/contrib/rom-o-matic/]] * gPXE release tarballs: [[http://kernel.org/pub/software/utils/boot/gpxe/]] * Latest source code: [[http://git.etherboot.org/?p=gpxe.git]] Changes since gPXE-1.0.0 include: * New drivers: Intel e1000, e1000e, igb, EFI snpnet, JMicron jme, Neterion X3100, vxge, pcnet32. * Bug fixes and improvements to drivers, wireless, DHCP, iSCSI, COMBOOT, and EFI.
