Subject: live-helper: building net fails for non-nfs root
Date: Wed, 02 Jun 2010 22:50:13 +0200
Package: live-helper
Version: 2.0~a14-1
Severity: normal


Hello

The live-initramfs should support these net filesystems (or
"filesystems") to boot from:

nfs, cifs, httpfs and wget.

The live-helper (according to man page) supports these net filesystems:

nfs, cfs (yes, without an i)

When building with --net-root-filesystem set to unsupported type the
build fails at the very end.

The live-helper should be able to generate a netboot tarball with
configuration for any kind of filesystem live-initramfs supports so that
the user can just unpack the tarball on the server and point the tftp
and filesystem servers at the appropriate parts of the tarball.

Thanks

Michal

for both httpfs and wget, the user can build a regular (non netboot)
image and copy binary/* to the server. don't know if it's worths do add
a distinct output format for that.

binary/* does not contain the pxelinux configuration and this is why
my images would not boot from httpfs with the new live-initramfs but
would boot from CD. There was a parameter missing in the on-server
configuration and there is no way how it would be updated from the
binary/* content.

Thanks
