Booting Ubuntu with BKO

Locating from where does the nfsboot is getting called

Mistory of do_nfsmount

do_nfsmount is defined at two places, why?

  1. /scripts/casper +198
  2. /scripts/nfs +8

My guess is that file /scripts/nfs is not used, it is just present there from older versions and has not been removed.

do_nfsmount function is getting called from /scripts/casper +188 which is from inside of

do_netmount()

and depend on variable

${NETBOOT}

The do_netmount() is getting called from mountroot() which is inside /scripts/casper +581 and the call depends on variable presense of variable ${NETBOOT} which is the boot parameter value of parameter netboot
