Week 10

TO DO List

  1. Complete the deployment script
  2. Deploy it on BKO

These are the pages and problems on which I am currently working

  1. Debian over iscsi – done :-)
  2. ubuntu in BKO – Finally it is working after removing networking and NetworkManager, only /etc/resolver.conf entry needs a fix –
  3. Fedora 11 in BKO – Able to boot indirectly after disabling networking and NetworkManager

27 July

  1. Working on deployment script.
  2. Completed the deployment script.
  3. There were small (and stupid) error which surfaced in the process of actual deployment, fixed them.
  4. Started the deployment process
  5. There was urgent need to support URL as boot.kernel.org mirror selection works at dns level.
    1. Adding /etc/resolv.conf to all the distributions with pre-configured value nameserver 208.67.222.222
  6. By end of the day, only debian was properly working over BKO. knoppix was getting stuck somewhere inbetween.

28 July

  1. As mirror selection is done at DNS level, removed the entries for URL's from boot menu.
  2. added default /etc/resolv.conf to all distributions
  3. DSL is throwing following error
httpfs : getaddrinfo rom.etherboot.org - Name or service not known.
  1. About ubuntu, it is booting properly from squashfs, but ISO is not booting. Most probably I have messed up the script where selection between iso and squashfs is done
