Description Dan Horák 2010-01-25 09:47:36 EST
Description of problem:
I am doing a PXE boot of KVM guest (Fedora 12) with PXE server driven by dnsmasq (Fedora 11). The issue is that gPXE understands filename option sent by BOOTP, but not in DHCP option 67.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
qemu-0.11.0-12.fc12.x86_64
gpxe-roms-qemu-0.9.7-6.fc12.noarch

Steps to Reproduce:
1. set boot type to PXE
2. start a guest
3. see non-successful attempts, press Ctrl+B
4. write "config" and see filename not set
  
Actual results:
filename not set

Expected results:
filename set

installing gpxe-0.9.9-1.20091018git.fc13 fixes the issue, so I think it worth to update the package in F-12 to the rawhide version

ok, the gpxe from rawhide is now built for updates-testing. Please give it a try and vote up the karma.
