I'm trying to install a debian system over the network by following this
I've done all steps but in "3.2 Customize your virtual system", I don't understand "Then simply install the wanted package. In our case, we will run partimage for dumping partition."
Does "install the wanted package" mean that I have to install a boot loader ?
What do you mean by "run partimage for dumping partition" ?
If I run partimage, it complains that /proc/partitions doesn't exist.
Solved with '$cp /proc/partitions /proc/mounts' /pxeroot/proc'.
And now what am i supposed to do ?
If I ignore this section, I can boot up but the remote pc is unable to acces to the nfs partition.
It display "Begin : Waiting for root file system..." and few minutes later :
"ALERT! /dev/nfs does not exist. Dropping to a shell!
Check your root= boot argument (cat /proc/cmdline)
Check for missing modules (cat /proc/modules), or device files (ls /dev)
BusyBox v1.1.3 (Debian 1:1.1.3-5) Built-in shell (ash)
Enter 'help' for a list of built-in commands.
/bin/sh: can't acces tty: job control turned off
And when I do "/etc/init.d/nfs-kernel-server restart", there is "RPC: failed to contact local rpcbind server (errno 5)" in syslog.
Can you help me ?
If you need log and/or configuration files, I can post them.
