Description Matt Domsch 2000-09-22 11:31:51 EDT
Using the IA-64 09/21 CD, I tried to do a kickstart FTP install.  Just as
anaconda tried to start, the file system in netstg1.img ran out of space
(it's a 6MB fs) for writing files such as libm there, so the install died.

I increased the size of the netstg1.img file system from 6MB to 8MB, and it
worked fine.  I also increased the size of the initrd.img on the boot
floppy from 4MB to 6MB, in case this also was tight on space.   IA-64
machines will have LOTS of memory, so making these a little bigger than
necessary is OK.

I tried without increasing the initrd.img size, and it worked fine.  Only the
netstg1.img fs size needs to be increased.
Comment 2 Michael Fulbright 2000-09-25 15:36:30 EDT
Brent please coordinate with Bill and Matt about how to best handle this in a
cross-platform friendly way.
Comment 3 Brent Fox 2000-09-29 12:29:01 EDT
Bill, is it okay for different platforms to have .img files of different size?
Comment 4 Matt Domsch 2000-10-18 14:41:04 EDT
Any update?
Comment 5 Bill Nottingham 2000-10-27 01:56:45 EDT
This is fixed in our current tree, and will be in
the next release (the ramdisks will probably be a little
larger than they need to be, but memory is relatively
cheap on ia64s. ;) )
