Re: pxeboot halting...



thanks for the replies, the solution I found was to insert the following line into /etc/dhcpd.conf
next-server <dhcpd server ip address>


if this line isn't in then the obsd machine displayed 0.0.0.0 as the server ip.

thanks for the replies

How to use boot pxeboot is described in the doc I wrote two days ago,
you can find a link to it in the list. You'll find examples that I
hope will help.

Hello list, help for the following problem would be greatly
appreciated, it's so frustrating.

Trying to pxeboot 3.7 on an EPIA machine with what Linux is reporting
to be a "Centaur VIA Samuel 2 stepping 03" processor. The server is a
mac with os 10.4, here is the /etc/dhcpd.conf:

allow booting;
allow bootp;
ddns-update-style none;
shared-network LOCAL-NET {
         subnet 192.168.1.0 netmask 255.255.255.0 {
                 option routers 192.168.1.88;
                 option root-path "/tftpboot";
                 filename "pxeboot";
                 range 192.168.1.32 192.168.1.52;
                 default-lease-time 86400;
                 max-lease-time 90000;
         }
}

The directory /tftpboot has the files pxeboot and bsd.rd and tftpd
has been verified to transfer files correctly. The EPIA machine is
pushed the pxeboot file and the usual prompt appears, so I type
bsd.rd and the spinning pipe character stays vertical and doesn'r move.
after a wait of around 1 minute the number "4302596" appears, about a
30 second wait then the following text appears:


  read text: Unknown error: code 60
failed(60). will try /bsd.old

Perhaps I should copy the file bsd.old into the tftpboot directory
but I cannot find such a file.

Can anyone help me, I have attempted googling but not found much,
Any solution and I promise to submit my dmesg! - what an incentive :(

thanks in advance
