pxeinstall updated

Eric Spakman updated pxeinstall with the following changes:

  • upgrade to kernel 2.4.32
  • various programs updated
  • cleanups and bugfixes
  • new: support for pcengines WRAP

pxeinstall.tgz provides a tool to make use of PXE to boot systems like Soekris net4501, LexSystem or WRAP so that you can format an IDE HD or a CF card, put an msdos file system and syslinux on the IDE/HD or CF card and finally copy all files necessary for a Bering(-uClibc) system on the storage device.

You can download pxeinstall.tgz from our package repository.

With the functionality of pxeinstall.tgz you can:

  • boot the system via the network
  • put a number of different file systems on the HD/CF card (minix, ext2, swap, msdos)
  • make the HD/CF card bootable (syslinux)
  • download files onto the card/HD via http or ftp (wget) or download files onto the card/HD via Windows networking (smbmount and cp)
Note

The PXE boot functionality can only be used to get a system up and running, it is not intended to be used for regular use. For example, you cannot backup any files because the backup function does not exist.

It can be used to install any LEAF distribution onto your HD/CF.

It requires a special Linux kernel config and the supported NIC's compiled into kernel - NIC modules won't work. The currently supported NIC's are:

  • 3c590/3c900 series (592/595/597) Vortex/Boomerang
  • AT1700/1720
  • AMD PCnet32 PCI
  • DECchip Tulip (dc21x4x) PCI
  • EtherExpressPro/100
  • National Semiconductor DP8381x series PCI Ethernet
  • PCI NE2000 and clones
  • RealTek RTL-8139 PCI Fast Ethernet Adapter
  • SMC EtherPower II
  • VIA Rhine
  • Winbond W89c840 EthernetI

For more doc's pls read Using Bering-uClibc with an IDE harddisk or CD-ROM drive.
