View Full Version : FC4 and nfs root

25th January 2006, 05:56 PM
I am trying ot setup a diskless system. Using FC4 x86_64 1563 I can boot with no problems through PXE and mount the root file system if it is on a local drive, but it completely bombs trying to use NFS. I tried recompiling the FC4 kernel with my NIC and nfs support but the make bombs out. Does anyone have any success with this or have pointers as to what the issue might be? Google has been worthless in that every doc I find leads to a dead end. Fedora seems to be finiky in regards to going diskless. I think I could crack this if I could edit the initrd... but I can't seem to mount it.

What is the last message you see before the system bombs out? Has the disklessrc script started running yet?
