Still having the problem ?

check the soft links on the MD in /usr/pluto/diskless/XX where XX is the MD designation.  Mine show.

initrd.img -> /usr/pluto/diskless/53/boot/initrd.img-2.6.27-14-generic
vmlinuz -> /usr/pluto/diskless/53/boot/vmlinuz-2.6.27-14-generic

You may have to manually fix if they are not pointing to the correct kernel boot files.
Everytime I generated a new MD they would point to ...27-7-generic which was wrong.

appologies for bumping on old post but I think I have this problem

the kernel refferences in /usr/pluto/diskless/81/boot dont seem to match my installed kernel
see below

Code: [Select]
uname -r
2.6.32-02063208-generic
chris@dcerouter:/$ cd /usr/pluto/diskless/81/boot
chris@dcerouter:/usr/pluto/diskless/81/boot$ ls
abi-2.6.27-17-generic     initrd.img                    System.map-2.6.27-17-generic  vmlinuz
config-2.6.27-17-generic  initrd.img-2.6.27-17-generic  vmcoreinfo-2.6.27-17-generic  vmlinuz-2.6.27-17-generic

could soemone please give me a step by step how to fix this?
I found a few howtos on changing sym link targets but not sure if thats the right way to fix this, I could be barking up the wrong tree

Thanks

I've been tinkering in /usr/pluto/diskless/81/boot since my last post
  • cp'd over the above files from /boot
  • made new symlinks to vmlinuz and initrd.img using "sudo ln initrd.img-2.6.32-02063208-generic initrd.img"


shouldn't the output of ls -l /usr/pluto/diskless/81/boot show where the symlinks point to, did i recreate them incorrectly?

I also couldn't find an equivelant for vmcoreinfo-2.6.27-17-generic in /boot

Ok so I got the symbolic links in /usr/pluto/diskless/##/ and  /usr/pluto/diskless/##/boot pointing to the correct kernels

I copied over the files from /boot since the correct ones werent in  /usr/pluto/diskless/##/boot by default

ls -l reports the following

I've re ran diskless.sh, reloaded router, rebuilt media director and through webui (each time having to fix sym links), and rebooted the core but I'm still getting "could not find kernel image" error when I try to PXE boot, see pic.

Its an asus B202 if that helps, up to date bios, I haven't done the r8168 as the wiki said it wasnt needed for 0810.  I#ve also checked tftpboot for symlinks but couldnt find any.

Any ideas?  Please

P.S. Would it be frowned upon if I reposted this in a new thread?, not sure if this one has gone off topic
