md not starting
« on: September 27, 2009, 08:13:45 pm »
Hello,

I have installed LMCE710 and I am trying to boot a diskless MD (micro ATX shuttle PC)

The TFTPBOOT is ok. I can see booting but after I see ETH0 : Link down and nothing happened anymore.

Can someone help me please?

Thanks.

My eth0 is a Realteck RTL 8680? I think but not sure.
It is a Shuttly X27D without HDD.

Hi,

Run a Live-CD on the MD and use the lspci -nn command to determine the make and model of your NIC.

Then have a look here
http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/Realtek_8168

and here
http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/Unrecognized_NIC

and see if that sorts it out.

thanks I will try the wiki guide.
Why is the Realtek 8168 causing problem? Is it because I am under 710? under kubuntu 9.04 it is ok.

Yes,  0710 has an older kernel that does not support that chip

Ok it is working a little better after editing the r8169.c manually

but now I have this message :

Diskless setup failed but maybe is it because the core detected on AMD64 structure and my CORE is i386?
I will search in the wiki...

Thanks all for your help
