Ok, I have an old Compaq box that I'm trying to get working as my first MD. If I boot it from my Kubuntu 8.10 Live CD and to an LSMOD I see that it is using the e100 driver. It connects to the network and it can ping DCE Router.
If I pxe boot it, though, I get a kernel panic of the "cannot open /tmp/net-eth0.conf" variety.
I have followed the wiki
on unknown nics and added e100 to /etc/initramfs-tools-interactor/modules. I regenerated initrd (the script /usr/pluto/bin/Diskless_BuildDefaultImage.sh doesn't exist, so I used
mkinitramfs -d /etc/initramfs-tools-interactor/ -o /tftpboot/default/initrd
I tried unpacking initrd and looking at the modules file in it e100 is there.
I have no idea where to go from here. Any suggestions?
