While I and one other have been successful I've heard of a couple issues more recently. I've heard of some issues with the diskless filesystem being created but the device itself should be creating.
Prepared the raspberry for network/usb booting (it is showing 0x3020000a).
I have not used the sdcard mentioned in the wiki. I used the way it was described there:
Should be the same result?
I assume you're booting without an sdcard. The RPi foundation has found a couple of bugs in that method. Try booting with an sdcard that has just bootcode.bin on it (or use the new one I just posted on the wiki, it'll set the OTP bit, rewrite the sdcard contents and reboot automatically).
Installed the default netboot kernel package.
Changed the TARGET_TYPE. (Do i need to change it back after i have created the tarball?)
No, it simply needs to be set for the target type you want the image created for prior to running the script. You could create a tarball for both i386 and rpi, for example.
The raspberry didn`t get recognized. So i even tried to add the template manually, providing a mac address and an ip address.
it won`t boot.
I really, really, really do not recommend adding the DT manually, it will not contain the serial number of the RPi, which is a requirement to netboot. The automatic process will pass the serial number to the core when it is discovered.
I made a tcpdump on the core/hybrid and all i could find is this:
13:48:52.061106 IP moon142.49154 > 0.0.0.0.tftp: 29 RRQ "autoboot.txt" octet tsize 0
13:48:53.061145 IP moon142.49155 > 0.0.0.0.tftp: 27 RRQ "config.txt" octet tsize 0
13:48:54.061306 IP moon142.49156 > 0.0.0.0.tftp: 29 RRQ "recovery.elf" octet tsize 0
13:48:55.061453 IP moon142.49157 > 0.0.0.0.tftp: 26 RRQ "start.elf" octet tsize 0
13:48:56.061562 IP moon142.49158 > 0.0.0.0.tftp: 26 RRQ "fixup.dat" octet tsize 0
That doesn't seem like it's passing the files. Can you run 'ls -lah /tftpboot/ | pastebinit' so I can see if all of the tftp files are setup properly.
I don`t know what i can do. Maybe reinstall everything? Did the netboot kernel package changed since last week? Is it a good idea to reinstall that?
Shouldn't have to re-install. The default kernel package has not changed since last week, the only change is that I've provided an sdcard to setup the OTP bit and rewrite the card automatically.
I would really like to have a noiseless raspberry as md.
And i really would be very thankfull for any idea/suggestion/hint!
The rpi is pretty nice as a lightweight MD, I've been running 3 permanent and 2 testing units for many years now.
I'll be checking into the issues that you, and others, have been reporting over the next few days. Thanks for testing!
