Description Jason Farrell 2011-11-09 13:29:45 EST
(Not sure where to file this, but gpxe seemed the closest relative)

I would like to request that the PXE images @ http://boot.fedoraproject.org be packaged (as "bfo"?), and a post-inst script included that adds an entry to grub2's menu.

Rationale: In order for this convenient network installation to gain even more traction, it should be more easily yum installable. yum install bfo && reboot  VS  wget http://fp.org/something && grubby --add something && reboot.

Additional Notes:
This is probably asking too much, but perhaps the post-inst script could also check the user's network devices for compatibility with gpxe before adding to grub. (Works on some of my machines, but not others)

I second this request. BFO is just like a special case of a kernel you only want to run occasionally. It would also work as a quick way to get the rescue system or run a live system.

Unfortunately this is not the right place for this kind of request. You need to file a ticket with the Fedora Infrastructure team:
