-- ran Diskless_CreateTBZ.sh -- SUCCESS!!! :-)
At this point, I have connected two different PCs neither one will install successfully. One PC is an old laptop that worked as a MD when I had snapshot 23614 installed (somehow I broke this system trying to set up MythTV and couldn't fix it and I couldn't get it to install successfully again so I downloaded a new snapshot and started all over). The other PC is one that I built for Mythbuntu that is attached to my home theater systems and works like a charm. Neither will do a successful MD boot. They both get to the point of running Diskless_Setup.sh but then fail within seconds with Diskless Setup Failed. I have searched the wiki and forum and I have had no success in fixing this. I can find the MD in webadmin.
I have tried the following:
-- deleting them and letting them go from scratch
-- filling in the blanks and rebuilding image
-- checked to make sure they are listed as i386
-- checked /usr/pluto/bin/files.d/fstab-diskless for the double quote at the end of mkdir*****/Asterisk line
-- checked for i386.tar.bz2 and amd64.tar.bz2in /usr/pluto/install
-- removed wireless usb-nic from my Mythbuntu rig prior to net-booting it.
-- checked to make sure that sudo nano /usr/pluto/diskless/MD#/etc/hosts included 192.168.80.1 dcerouter
-- DHCP is turned on in webadmin, the router is set to 192.168.80.1 and all the IP ranges are all filled in.
These are the things that I found in the wiki and forum to try. Most of them are older issues that have since been dealt with in later snapshots. I'm at a total loss as to where to go from here. I really don't want to do a complete reinstall of my system since this is the furthest I have ever gotten.
Any help is appreciated. If I need to post some specs or log files, tell me what you need and I will post.
