Adding Detection scripts to PXE MD's
« on: December 31, 2007, 04:40:55 am »
hehe, How?

I have my detection script in /usr/pluto/pnp (on the core)

I  want to 'push' that script to a PXE boot (Fiire Station 1")

I've tried rebuilding the image.. but my script doesn't seem to propagate (sp?) to the image..

I'm sure it's something simple that I'm missing..

Oh, BTW, I would consider myself to be 1 step above a linux newbie.. (Yeah, yeah, I know...)
I've really only started playing in linux since linuxmce 1.0... (honest!)

However, I have 'chewed' through MythTV SVN.. patching, compiling, all that stuff...

Thanks again...

k, I've figured out the nfs boot image is /usr/pluto/diskless/xx/debian/usr/pluto/pnp..

The wiki says if it gets corrupt, simply delete it and rebuild it.

Where does it rebuild from?  and is it safe to put my detection script there?

It should build MD images from the exising File system.  Does your script match mine?

Note that the last number of the Messagesend argument list will be your template number for the PLM

When you nail down those answers, would you update the wiki article?
