PXE Rescatux ?
« on: 2011/06/22, 08:26:59 am »
Hello

Thanks for your work. Rescatux works perfectly.

It would be great if we can pxe boot rescatux, like parted magic or gparted live.

What do you think about it ?

Rescatux is based on Debian Live.

So it seems all you need is to know:
  • How to build Rescatux from squeeze chroot (If you do not use squeeze)
    • How to make squeeze chroot
    • Maybe setting up a local mirror of squeeze and setup chroot sources.list accordingly
    • Read README file to install  package requirements inside the chroot
    • Run ./make_rescatux_hybrid.sh from inside chroot
    • Test the resultant iso to make sure you know how to do the iso
    • Copy and paste ./make_rescatux_hybrid.sh to ./make_rescatux_net.sh
  • Edit ./make_rescatux_net.sh like it is recommend on How to prepare a Debian live image to boot from pxe
  • Run ./make_rescatux_net.sh
  • Setup tftp server
  • Try to boot from a machine

I do not have interest on trying all of this stuff right now. But if you want to test these steps I might guide on probably most of them because I once worked a bit on pxes and tcos.

So... Do you accept the challenge?

Hi,

you can also download and unpack the rescatux-iso, toss the files from the live folder on your tftp and use this:
Code: [Select]
Label recatuxx86
        menu label Rescatux - x86
        text help
                    Rescue PC
        endtext
        KERNEL /rescatux/vmlinuz
        APPEND initrd=/rescatux/initrd.img boot=live config noswap noquiet fetch=tftp://SERVERIP/linux/rescatux/filesystem.squashfs

Label recatuxx64
        menu label Rescatux - x64
        text help
                    Rescue PC
        endtext
        KERNEL /rescatux/vmlinuz2
        APPEND initrd=/rescatux/initrd2.img boot=live config noswap noquiet fetch=tftp://SERVERIP/linux/rescatux/filesystem.squashfs

have fun

Hi gammelobst,

  Thank you for your pxe instructions. You performed them with isolinux based iso (iso inside the iso).

Isn't it?

Thank you.
