boot Asus EEE box in beta 8.10
« on: November 29, 2009, 09:04:47 pm »
Hi,

I'm running a beta 8.10 install and I'm trying to netboot a Asus EEE box 202 as MD. The r8168.ko linked at the wikipage doesn't seem to work (due to new kernel?) and I was not successful by hacking the Realtek driver by myself. Could anybody provide a working r8168.ko or is the old one working on other installs?

thanks a lot
IF

I don't think you should need to any of that with 0810

I have an Asus EEE box, and I just installed it during the weekend, so I can tell you what I did.

First, fix the error in fstab-diskless described in http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/Diskless_setup_failed_error_in_0810_beta

I normally use NANO editor, so I ran

nano -w /usr/pluto/bin/files.d/fstab-diskless

and fix the last line to make it look like this:

mkdir -p "${Parm_RootLocation}/var/spool/asterisk"
(just add " at the end)

Secondly, followed also these instructions http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/Error_Running_Diskless_CreateTBZ.sh

Then I ran /usr/pluto/bin/Diskless_CreateTBZ.sh

Finally, I plugged the B202 to the network, booted up, and I just let it go for a while, and then, AVWizard came up. The rest, is well known.

GL.
