I have followed the 'FreeBSD Jumpstart Guide' to build a system for
installing FreeBSD 4.9-RELEASE via PXE. I can now perform PXE client
installs, but have so far been unable to resolve the following
1. I have compiled and installed a custom kernel on my PXE server
which works fine. I have placed my new kernel in /usr/tftpboot and
in the NFS root. The PXE client loads the correct kernel to start the
install, but after rebooting the client boots the GENERIC
kernel. Where is sysinstall getting this kernel from?
2. I have a 'shutdown' command at the end of my install.cfg script,
but on both a Dell Precision 610 and an IBM PC330, this does not
work: instead the system reboots and restarts the installation
unless I intercept the reboot! What am I missing?
3. I get a prompt 'loading module ida.ko failed'. This is for Compaq
Smart RAID, but I did not configure this option in my custom
kernel. Presumably, I have not configured the list of kernel
Any pointers gratefully received - this has been driving me nuts for too
This is my first post to the list.
