I've been building FreeBSD jumpstart infrastructure and it mostly
works. I'm using tftp to boot off the network in to scripted
sysinstall. I compiled the boot loader with tftp support but every time
I boot it will first try nfs, then timeout after around two minutes (it
cannot find nfs) and finally boot from tftp. Is there any way that I
can make it boot from tftp straight away rather than wait for nfs to
This is how I build the boot loader:
sudo make clean
sudo make LOADER_TFTP_SUPPORT=YES
sudo cp i386/pxeldr/pxeboot /jumpstart/tftpd/boot/pxeboot.0
sudo cp i386/boot0/boot0 /jumpstart/tftpd/boot/
sudo cp i386/boot2/boot1 /jumpstart/tftpd/boot/
sudo cp i386/boot2/boot2 /jumpstart/tftpd/boot/
sudo cp i386/mbr/mbr /jumpstart/tftpd/boot/
I wrote the howto refered to in other reply, it's a while ago I played
with this, but I have no reason to think that much has changed on the
6.x branch, I have just tried 7.x and build of the loader this way fails.
As I understand the documentation, enabling TFTP disables NFS, they are
When building the loader make sure that your source tree is clean and
/usr/obj is empty, or it won't work. I recall this puzzled me a long
time until I found the trick. I don't think it is enough to do make clean.
Second, I did
# cd /usr/src/sys/boot
# make -DLOADER_TFTP_SUPPORT=YES
ok, as said, it's a while ago I played with this, they may have
introduced support for the usual way of stating options.
