PXE boot desktop porteus

Post#1 by Francimore » 02 Jun 2017, 11:23

Hi everyone,
I have porteus desktop. When I boot from iso like as pxe server the client boot correctly to same environment. The problem is given when i want boot porteus desktop from Centos 7.

On server I have:
DHCP
TFTPBOOT
Apache httpd

The questions is what debugging incorrect loading.?
I see how to load vmlinuz and initrd. After this phase I get message:
Startin init script <http://www.porteus.org>
^ searching for porteus-v3.2-x86_64.sgn file
^ device not ready yet? dealying XYZ seconds

Porteus data not found
...
Good luck!
The server and sharing is correct, because I test this approach with slax linux and they run, but porteus not.

in path /var/lib/tftpboot/pxelinux.cfg/default
default menu.c32
prompt 0
timeout 300
ONTIMEOUT local
menu title ########## MenuEntry for boot ##########
label 1
menu label ^1) porteus
kernel /vmlinuz
append initrd=/initrd.xz http_server=192.168.0.1:7529 load_ramdisk=1 prompt_ramdisk=0 rw printk.time=0
http is set to home path /var/www/

netstat -tunelpa told me:

I boot porteus live desktop and search some scripts and folder with configuration of pxe server.
configuration of pxe-server:
/opt/porteus-scripts/pxe-server
storage of package xzm vmlinuz initrd ...... :
/srv/pxe/

can you help me setup?

Thanks Francimore

Porteus as a PXE client expects the bulk of its data via NFS, a setup that Porteus as a PXE server implements of course, but which CentOS as a PXE server seems to do not (or not by default).
:D
