I followed the directions as posted here http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/Unrecognized_NIC
Initially there is no directory at /usr/pluto/diskless
After running these
sudo <editor-of-choice> /etc/initramfs-tools-interactor/modules
and adding the line sky2 (marvell nic driver)
mkinitramfs -d /etc/initramfs-tools-interactor/ -o /tftpboot/default/initrd
and powering on the media director it actually pics up the nic on the media director and installs
then the media director reboots itself and I get back to "can't find eth0"
However now there is the directory /usr/pluto/diskless in the mce core and the media director is 50.
Now I did the following
/usr/pluto/diskless/50/etc and and put the line "sky2" into a file called "modules"
/usr/pluto/diskless/50/etc/initramfs-tools and put the line "sky2" into a file called "modules"
To create a new initial ram disk the command is
mkinitramfs -o initrd.img-`uname -r` `uname -r`
the media director still doesn't work, I still get 'Kernel Panic' during the initial PXE boot process can't find eth0.
Does anyone have any suggestions?
can it be this caveat
"The above steps do not work, if the media director and the core utilize two different CPU architectures,ie. one is using AMD64 the other i386 (chroot won't work)."
My core is I386 and my media director is being loaded as AM64.
should I reload my core with the AM64 install? (it is 64 capable 2.4ghz core 2 duo processor)
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
